Board feet estimate per tree
« on: August 19, 2008, 07:02:56 pm »
Is there a good way to estimate how many board feet are in a tree with a specific DBH?

I was asked to give a sawing estimate for two large white oaks standing in a gentlemans yard, one is about 36" DBH, the other is about 38" DBH.

There's a fine line between turning firewood into beautiful things and beautiful things into firewood.
