Variable radius plot and 3P timber sampling



Variable radius plot and 3P timber sampling



Resource Inventory Notes (BLM 17): 1-6



Instructions are given for multi-stage sampling by two methods. Variable radius plot can be used for rapid sample selection whilst 3P can be used for precise measurement of a smaller number of sample trees.
