Forest Measurements

FOR 265 Forest Measurements is a study of the policies and procedures used for timber cruising, product valuation, log scaling, and waste and residue assessment in British Columbia. Using timber valuation as a focal point, emphasis is placed on field data collection techniques, sampling methods, statistics and data compilation. The roles of the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations and the forest industry are also explored in class and during onsite tours of local forest products manufacturers.
