Environmental Assessment OR-100-00-06 Project Under Implementation
The Roseburg District cruises forest stands to evaluate the quantity and quality of timber available for timber sales and land exchanges. Cruising involves indirect estimation of the standing timber volume and condition by non-destructive means. In the past, District cruisers have used 3P (Probability is Proportional to Prediction) Fall, Buck and Scale in conjunction with cruising. 3P Fall, Buck and Scale employs direct measurement of a set of sample trees. The probability that a tree becomes a part of the sample is proportional to predicted volume (an advanced ocular estimate of a tree's volume.) In response to public concerns, the Roseburg District has suspended the use of 3P Fall, Buck and Scale sampling pending the completion of this environmental assessment.
