Forestry Conversion Calculators

Scale We are developing a set of forestry conversion calculators for the web based on David Briggs Forest Products Measurements and Conversion Factors publication. Eventually, this site will encompass the majority of the forestry conversions available in Briggs book. If there are particular conversions that you would find useful or any questions or general comments would you like to make regarding this project, please let us know by visiting our Comments Page.

We're still working on more conversion calculators, but for now if you need a conversion equation you can get it here. We have David Briggs' Forest Products Measurement and Conversion Factors available in its entirety.
