Funny you should bring this up, I used Southern Wood Conversion Factors
and Rules of Thumb brom the Alabama Forestry Link, whos URL I got from
your page, during testimony on a timber theft trial this past week. 
Information gained on the net is going into the court room, as well as
the living rooms of our clients.  Beleave me, when your in a need to
know situation it is essential that we develope the skills, ability, and
just plain smarts to use what is available to us.

God, I love my work!
