Many of Masser’s caliper programs include the option for pile volume measurement. User needs to measure average height, width and log length and give a conversion factor to compute solid volume. In some applications the user measures an average diameter of the logs by sampling. By giving the log length an average volume/ per log can be computed. Multiplying this mid log volume by the count of the logs gives the total volume.
For calculating stacked timber volume user needs to measure average height, width and log length and give a conversion factor for solid volume.
