    Description

    In these days of climbing stumpage prices it is frequently desirable to attain more precision from a relascope cruise than is possible using ready-made volume factors. Like any factors made to be approximately applicalble over a wide range of conditions, volume factors may give very misleading results under certain local condition. For this reason it is desirable to check ready-made factors under local conditions, and to calculate local factors if sufficient precision is not attained.
