[Archive] Top diameter sawlog tables

Lead Author: Forestry Commission

Home publication [Archive] Top diameter sawlog tables

This Field Book describes the top diameter method for estimating the volume of logs which is usually confined to softwood sawlogs. This method is less time consuming and so cheaper than the more traditional mid diameter method and is best suited to batches of uniform length logs. The description of logs in terms of top diameter and length provides a useful basis for size classification. This publication is no longer available in hard copy.
