DescriptionWeight, volume, and physical properties of trees 1 to 20 inches d.b.h.were determined for red maple, sweetgum, sycamore, yellow-poplar, elm, hickory, chestnut oak, scarlet oak, southern red oak, and white oak in the Piedmont of the Southeastern United States. A total of 772 trees were destructively sampled at 16 locations from Viryinia to Alabama. Hard hardwoods, soft hardwoods, and individual species equations are presented for predicting green and dry weight and green volume of the total tree above stump and its components by usingd.b.h.and total height, d.h.h. and height to a 4-inch top, d.b.h. and saw-log merchantable height, and d.b.h. Average specific gravity, moisture content, and weight per cubic foot of wood, bark, and wood and hark combined are presented for each species by tree size class and component. Bark percentage is also presented for each species by tree size class and component.
