Abstract: Every person dealing with the production and sale of logs in this country should have a copy of this guide, which sets out the practical procedures for the measurement of New Zealand roundwood. The guide updates and combines three earlier publications: Log Scaling Guide for Exporters (FRI Bulletin 221, 2001); Procedures for the Measurement of Roundwood (FRI, 1994); and New Zealand Forest Service Information Series #70. The guide has three major sections: Basic measurements; Domestic methods; and Export log scaling methods. These are supplemented by sections on log quality measurements, conversion between export scales and domestic cubic metres, and check scaling procedures.
