The industrial wood assortment is not measured one by one but the whole stack. The stacks could be very different depending from the diameter the length the site quality (the place where the timber have grown) the wood specie even the standards quality of the stacking work. Photo analytical method was developed and implemented for determining the individual solid wood content of each stack. The image processing was done by the methods of statistical image analysis in Hue, Saturation, Value

According to the result of this developing project the solid wood volume become measurable. The accuracy of the new photo analytical method is significantly higher than that of the traditional methods.  Index Terms-image analysis, photo analytical measurement, solid wood content, stacked wood
