Where the quantity of timber is described by weight, or by volume, this unit of measurement will be the cubic metre with one metric tonne being deemed equivalent to one cubic metre by volume, providing always that measurement of the timber takes place within six weeks of felling. Where measurement is made over six weeks from felling, by the piece, or by any other agreed system the weight/volume conversion factor, the
average volume of each piece or other agreed measurement will be determined by reference to Forestry Commission Booklet 39 and the appropriate tables therein.”
