How does Timbeter measure – under or over the bark?

You are here:

The majority of countries use under the bark measurement for volume calculation, so does Timbeter. Timbeter detects the contour area of a log under the bark and converts it to a symmetrical circle. The bark is excluded from the diameter. Only a couple of countries (like some of our partners in Finland) are actually measuring log diameters over the bark. If you require calculating the volume over the bark, then simply add 10-12%, as this is the most common ratio for bark.
