Some of those methods consist in: i) to propose a taper equation and then to estimate the volume by integral calculus, ii) to propose a volume equation where the volume can be directly obtained as a function of height, normal diameter, and total height, and iii) to use a sectional method where the volume can be known for longitudinal sections as function of cross sectional areas and lengths (Brack, 1999).
