Crown and slash weights from 405 lodgepole pine trees in pure, even-aged stands were sampled. Graphical analysis showed that individual crown weights are directly proportional to diameter (b.h.). Slash weight-merchantable volume ratios varied inversely as average stand diameter for stands up to 7 inches and remained constant for stands of 7 to 9 inches diameter. Surface area per pound of slash is directly proportional to the average diameter of the original stand.
