Measuring the trunk

  • Measurement on the stump

Measurement on the stump can be done with

A) 2 signs, in which case one measurement point is the diameter at chest height and another at an ocularly chosen height.

B) 3 signs, in which case the trunk is measured, in addition to the previous points, at a height of six meters.

In both cases the volume of the trunk can be seen straight from charts.

  • The diameter of a felled tree

The diameter of a felled tree is measured in 1-3 meter parts, and lastly the volumes of the measured parts are totalled in order to find out the total volume of the trunk.

  • Measuring with a multi-process machine

A multi-process machine measures the tree’s volume up to the cut-off point. Even separate wood grades can be itemized on the basis of the volume data.
