Description: Ucar (Bucida buceras L.) is a timber tree of the dry forests of islands in and lands surrounding the Caribbean. The wood is attractive and strong but very heavy and hard. Little information and no volume tables were available for the species, however. Fifty trees from forests in Puerto Rico were measured for d.b.h., merchantable height, and diameter and bark thickness at 1-m intervals on the bole. Equations for inside and outside bark merchantable volumes were developed and are presented in equation and tabular form.
