Weights and volumes of fuewood 4 inches d.o.b. or larger were determined for 247 hard hardwood and 257 soft hardwood trees from 5 to 28 inches d.bh. growing in the Southeast. Equations are presented for predicting the green weight of wood and bark and volume of wood in fuewood ~ 4 inches d.o.b. in the total tree above stump, in the main stem to 4-inch top, and in topwood above the saw-log top. Equations predict weight and volume of fuewood using d.bh. and total height, d.b.h. and height to
