Description: Taper functions describe a model of the actual geometric shape of a tree. When this shape is assumed to be known, volume by any log rule and to any merchantability standard can be calculated. PINEVOL is a computer program for calculating the volume of the major southern pines using species-specific bole taper functions. It can use the Doyle, Scribner, or International ¼-inch log rules or calculate solid wood volume inside or outside of bark. This document describes the methods used in volume calculation in PINEVOL and is a program user’s guide.
Keywords: Loblolly pine, longleaf pine, shortleaf pine, slash pine, stem profile equations, taper functions
