Forest Mensuration is a key stone in the foundation of forestry. The management of forest and tree plantations requires a quantitative estimate of timber biomass and by products. Such information is also needed for forest-policy decisions. Forest and forestry research requires a great deal of additional information like density of the forests and stands, diversity, spatial distribution of trees within stands, and the expected growth of trees and stands. Forest Mensuration is deals with these topics. The exercises and problems at the end of most of two chapters are added primarily for the benefit of UG and P.G students.
Mensuration is a means, not an end. It is indispensable aid to solving problems in management, finance and silviculture. Graphic and statistical conceptions acquired in mensurational work will be found equally useful in almost any quantitative problem in any branch of forest investigation. This book is a valuable resource for students, teachers and researchers in forestry and forestry related studies. Besides this, it is also need for forest policy decisions.

Donald Bruce was a consulting Forester at Portland, Oregon
Francis X. Schumacher was professor of Forestry in school of Forestry at Duke University, Durham NC, USA.
