    Table 1. - Logovalifymultipliers to maintain a constantcross The 52 western hemlock logs were obtained from western Oregon. Western hemlock is a commercially important tree species in the Pacific Northwest, second in importance to zero sweep, but had taper, calculated as the difference be­. A type of tree, western hemlock, was found to have a breast height diameter distribution that resembled an exponential distribution with? = 40 centimeters. Find the probability that a western hemlock tree has a diameter that exceeds 30 centimeters.

    In normal yield tables were compiled by Meyer (7) ^ for even-aged stands of Sitka spruce {Picea sitchensis) and western hemlock (Tsuga heterophylld), The basic data for the tables were collected over the entire coastal range of the species, extending from southern Oregon through Washington and British Columbia to southeastern Alaska.

In the West Coast Forestry procedures Committee recommended several mensuration projects, one of which called for the construction of taper tables for Western hemlock. In response the present tables were prepared.

Basic data for these tables consist of measurements of trees taken a number of years ago by members of the Pacific Northwest Forest & Range Experiment : Floyd A. Johnson, Wilbur.

Whether explicitly stated or not, both tarif tables and taper models are accessed by determining the value of a third parameter in addition to dbh and height.

similar to those in the western hemlock yield tables, a lower form factor for mountain hemlock might be expected to result in volumesi, below those shown in the western hemlock yield tables.
