The studies on which the tables in this publication were based establish that data on the complete tree can be obtained by employing modern harvesting equipment thus eliminating a problem of measurement that has been impossible or difficult for hundreds of years. The tables in this publication are based on a limited amount of data obtained in a small area. However, these indicate the method and they can be useful guides for professional foresters and helpful to research workers who are seeking improved techniques for biological investigations such as site productivity. They are a beginning in an approach to a fuller use of the whole tree. Species covered: aspen, red maple, red spruce, white birch, balsam fir, hemlock, and white pine.
