Title: A Local Net Volume Equation for Iowa

Author: Hahn, Jerold T.;

Date: 1976

Source: Research Note NC-199. St. Paul, MN: U.S. Dept. of Agriculture, Forest Service, North Central Forest Experiment Station

Publication Series: Research Note (RN)

Description: As a part of the 1974 Forest Survey of Iowa, the Station''s Forst Resources Evaluatioin Research Staff developed a merchantable tree volume equation and tables of coefficients for Iowa. They were developed for both board-foot (International ?-inch rule) and cubic foot volumes, for several species and species groups of growing-stock trees. The equation and the coefficients can be used on a digital computer or modern electronic desk calculator by industrial foresters, consulting foresters, or others in need of quick net-volume-per-tree estimates.

Keywords: tree volume equation, Iowa, net-volume-per-tree estimates
