A Forest Measurements Field Day was hosted by the Ochoco National Forest Timber Sale Crew; Shelby Williams and Jeff Finley, in the the McKay Creek watershed. Students applied statistical skills in forest inventory by learning how to measure height, age, diameter at breast of individual trees and then to calculate basal area and trees per acre from fixed and variable radius plots from a timber cruising sampling design.
