Forests must be measured if they are to be managed and conserved properly. This book describes the essential principles of modern forest measurement, whether using simple hand-held equipment or sophisticated satellite imagery. It particularly focuses on measuring forest biomass over large forest.

Forms FSS (scale) and FST (tree measurement) are used for the sale of timber products that can be measured in cubic feet (convertible) and are shorter versions of contract forms FS and FST. Form FSP is used for the sale of forest products that cannot be measured in cubic feet (nonconvertible).

Measurement of Forest Products. Products cut from tree boles are measured in different units, depending on local customs and end use. The most common units are cubic volume, stacked wood measure, board-feet, and weight.

Tree sections 8 ft ( m) or more in length are called logs; shorter pieces are referred to as sticks or bolts. wilderness, National Parks, defense installations, and National Forests. * Sampling Intensity - The new program includes the measurement of a fixed proportion of the plots in each State, each year, known as annual inventory.

Each portion of the plots is known as a panel. The legislative mandate requires measurement of 20% of the plots in. smaller quantities are needed, while for national level one should have lot of stands and several trees from those stands) in each diameter class of 5 cm width (Guendehou et al.

Although the importance of tree height in allometric models used to estimate tropical tree biomass is widely recognised (Feldpausch et al., ), it is rare to measure the heights of all trees in a permanent sample plot, meaning that it is often necessary to use existing allometric models to estimate tree height (Chave et al., ; Feldpausch.

The core samples were mounted onto wooden slats, air-dried and sanded to obtain a smooth cross-section; tree ring widths were measured to the nearest mm using LINTAB™ 6 tree-ring measurement station with TSAP-Win software.

Existing regional and national forest inventories can provide reasonable estimates of the number (viz. richness) of distinct forest tree species in a region or a nation (Magnussen, ).

Large-scale forest inventory sampling with fixed area sample units (plots, quadrants, clusters) are typically characterized by sampling only a small. It is a very efficient method of sampling for estimation of those forest resources that are well and positively correlated with tree basal area; e.g, aggregate bole volume or biomass.

Poisson sampling, introduced into the forestry literature by Grosenbaugh as 3P sampling, is yet another method of sampling trees with unequal selection probabilities. Introduction. The sample design to support the technical program supporting a National Forest Assessment (NFA) requires a theoretical design that must be implemented on the ground (see Implementation of an NFA).Understanding the basic concepts related to statistical design and estimation methods are one component of the overall process for Information management and Data registration.

Sampling Unit A sampling unit is one of a set of objects in a sample that is drawn to make inferences about a population of those same objects. A collection of sampling units is a sample. Sampling units can be individual plants, points, plots, quadrats, or transects.

Steve Nix. Measuring a tree's diameter is fundamental to managing, buying, and selling standing timber. Diameter tape, or D-tape, is used primarily to measure a tree's diameter, usually at breast or chest height, the most common measurement made by tree tape has regular length measurements on one side and diameter conversions on the other.

Background. Developing countries that are willing to participate in the recently adopted (16 th Session of the Conference of Parties (COP) in Cancun) mitigation mechanism of Reducing emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation - and the role of conservation, sustainable management of forests and enhancement of forest carbon stocks (REDD+) - will have to establish a national forest.

Forests have an important role in the global carbon cycle and are valued globally for the services they provide to society (Pan et al., ).Forest productivity has long been a focus in global change studies, as forests account for a large portion of sequestered carbon by terrestrial ecosystems ().Forest productivity has been estimated using a variety of methods including.
