The Foresters at Woodland Management Service do Appraise forests of all sizes ranging from individual urban trees to large tracts as large as a half million acres.
Considering that it takes a day to measure and appraise a group of trees in a yard you would think that it would take weeks to measure a forty, or decades to measure a large half million acre tract.
Luckily for our clients, as the properties get larger, our samples get smaller.  On very small properties where the diversity is proportionally larger we need to measure many more trees per acre to get accurate results, often 100 percent, whereas on larger properties we take carefully designed sample plots that accomplish the same quality goal.
These sample plots are designed to get a good sampling of all of the trees in the forest, and the number and size of the plots will be based on the diversity of the forest in proportion to the size of the forest.
And each plot is also weighted as to the size of the trees, with more larger trees than smaller trees ... more
