    Note: Taken to a two inch diameter at the top. No volume measured in
a tree that did not have an eight foot stick
with a two inch top. Each species reaches the height of four and a half feet
in about seven years, at which time the
tree beans to put on diameter breast high, and potential volume begins, but
is not shown in table until a stick eight feet
long with a two inch top is produced. Although this early volume is probably
not a merchantable volume, it is poten-
tially present, and as soon as a definite size is reached, (as for instance
6" D. B. H.) it enters the merchantable claas.
