Tree Volume Tables And Equations

Part of the Managing Forest Ecosystems book series (MAFE, volume 13)

The early German tree volume tables estimated the total tree volume, i.e., the volume of bole and branches, above the traditional 7 cm diameter limit of merchantability. Most volume tables, however, exclude branch volume unless such tables are constructed to estimate the volume of trees utilized for the production of energy. The modern trend is to construct volume tables for the estimation of the total stem volume and to develop functions, which give the merchantable stem volume, usually for variable upper-diameter limits.
