A textbook for introductory courses in forest measurement. Emphasizes measuring timber, but also describes measuring wood products and standing trees, predicting the growth of both individual trees and stands, and assessing range, wildlife, water, and recreational resources. Assumes only algebra and plane trigonometry, though statistics and calculus would be helpful. Revised from the 1983 edition based on suggestions from instructors.
