Enter the height, diameter, and value per board foot into the calculator to determine the Cedar tree value. This calculator can also evaluate any of the variables given the others are known.

Cedar Tree Value Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the value of a Cedar tree.

CTV = (H * D^2) * V


  • CTV is the Cedar tree value ($)
  • H is the height of the tree (feet)
  • D is the diameter of the tree (inches)
  • V is the value per board foot ($)

To calculate the Cedar tree value, multiply the height of the tree by the square of the diameter. Then, multiply the result by the value per board foot.

How to Calculate Cedar Tree Value?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Cedar Tree Value.

  1. First, determine the height of the tree (H) in feet.
  2. Next, determine the diameter of the tree (D) in inches.
  3. Next, determine the value per board foot (V) in dollars.
  4. Next, gather the formula from above = CTV = (H * D^2) * V.
  5. Finally, calculate the Cedar Tree Value (CTV).
  6. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

Height of the tree (H) = 10 feet

Diameter of the tree (D) = 20 inches

Value per board foot (V) = $5
