    Description

    Tables giving average tree volumes by breast-height diameter classes frequently may be used in timber cruising to save money, time, and men. Such tables may be appropriate in cruises of large areas having many trees in low-intensity cruises warranting the sacrifice in accuracy that results from omission of individual tree height measurements, during wartime when men are scarce or when inexperienced cruisers have difficulty in estimating heights. In response to numerous recent requests from cruisers and forest land agencies, nine of the more important tables used by the Forest Service in California are here presented in diameter class form.
