About this book

Timber Measurement was first published in 1983 as Booklet 49. Its punchy, practical style proved popular with practitioners trying to work out how to take basic measurements on trees and timber and apply standard forest mensuration procedures in the field. This revised edition has been produced primarily to achieve consistency with the second edition of Forest Mensuration: a handbook for practitioners. The new edition includes a number of significant changes, including a revised section on weight measurement. The section on abbreviated tariffing has been amended for consistency with Forest Mensuration: a handbook for practitioners. The opportunity has also been taken to make small refinements to the information in all sections to improve clarity and, in a departure from the original format, a number of decision trees have been included to help guide users through the various methods and procedures.
