**trees**with a 14-inch diameter on the other hand, will weigh 1 ton. Larger hardwood

**trees**that are around 24 inches in diameter can weigh as much as 3.55 tons while mature hardwood

**trees**that already have 36 inches in diameter or 113 inches in circumference can weigh a whopping 8.21 tons.

Consequently, how heavy is an oak tree?

The landowner looked in Table 1 and found that the merchantable portion of a hardwood **tree** of that size is estimated to **weigh** 2.16 tons.

**for every foot**of length of this 40" diameter log, you have 8.73 cubic

**feet**of

**wood**. At 55 pounds

**per**cubic

**foot**, you have 480 pounds

**per**linear

**foot**of log.

Simply so, how heavy is a tree log?

Scaling diameter is the average diameter inside the bark at the small end of the **log**; MBF is 1,000 board feet. Tons per MBF value is an average over all **log** lengths. board feet of Doyle scaled **logs** can weigh, on average, from 15 to 5 tons for **log** (scaling) diameters from 8 to 20 inches, respec- tively (Table 3).
