Home publication [Archive] Mid diameter volume tables (third edition)

This Field Book provides tables for estimating the volume of logs using the traditional mid diameter method. Although it is a very accurate method, it becomes less accurate as the length increases. The volume is derived from the product of the length of the log and its mean cross-sectional area. In practice it is the diameter at the mid point which is actually measured. This publication is no longer available to order in hard copy.
