Item description for Tree and Forest Measurement by P.W. West...

Trees and forests are large and complex, but even something as difficult as the amount of wood they contain can be measured with quite unsophisticated equipment. Everyone, from professional foresters to the layperson, who works with forests and needs to measure them no matter where in the world, will appreciate this book. It summarises modern forest measurement techniques and describes why forests are measured, how to measure them, and the basis of the science behind these techniques.

Professor Phil West has been a forest scientist for over 30 years. His research speciality is the mathematical modelling of forest growth behaviour. He is presently a forestry consultant and teaches forest measurement in the forestry school of Southern Cross University in northern New South Wales, Australia.

Reviews - What do customers think about Tree and Forest Measurement?

excellent reference  Mar 10, 2006
excellent handbook for use in practical plantation inventory. relevant to australian conditions - most useful. good beginners guide.
Thorough review of basics  Feb 17, 2004
A well structured book which explains in a straightforward fashion the measurement of individual trees, tree stands and entire forests through inventory. It does so with the minimum of mathematics, but has enough so that professional practicioners will be able to determine their results fully. It suits well its audience, from the student to the scientist to the farm forester.
