Description: Local volume tables for ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa Dougl. ex Laws. var. ponderosa), sugar pine (Pinus lambertiana Dougl.), Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii [Mirb.] Franco), California white fir (Abies concolor var. lowiana [Gord.] Lemm.), and incense-cedar (Libocedrus decurrens Torr.) are presented by 1-inch diameter classes in the range of 3 to 40 inches for ponderosa pine, Douglas-fir, California white fir, and incense-cedar. Sugar pine is presented to 45 inches. Trees were measured by an optical dendrometer. Tables are presented for each species in terms of cubic volume to a 0- and 6-inch top, and Scribner board feet to a 6-inch top. The tables are applicable to trees growing on land of high site quality in the northern Sierra Nevada of California at low to mid elevations.

Keywords: ponderosa pine, sugar pine, Douglas-fir, California white fir, incense-cedar, local volume tables
