Description: Red alder is a species of increasing importance in the Pacific Northwest. Interest in improved volume tables for the species resulted in publication of the 1949 volume tables. More recently, Browne (1962) published cubic-foot-volume tables for red alder in British Columbia, and Hoyer (1966) presented tarif access tables, based on the 1949 tables, for use with the general tarif tables of Turnbull et al. (1963).
This paper presents new volume and taper tables for red alder. These form a unified system, permitting computation of cubic- and board-foot volumes for alternative assumed scaling practices and limits of merchantability.
