How to Visualize Board Feet
MBF = thousand board feet
MMBF = million board feet
BBF = billion board feet
For example, 5 MBF would read as "five thousand board feet"
- It takes about 11 MBF to build an average two bedroom house. One logging truck carries 4- 5 MBF per load.
- The total salvage harvested in the Northern Rockies region, for the first half of the fiscal year 1995, was 230.5 MMBF. This is equivalent to about 46,000 logging trucks.
- The total salvage available for future harvest in the Northern Rockies equals 1184.3 MMBF. This is equivalent to about 237,000 logging trucks.
- The total anticipated national salvage under the Emergency Salvage Logging Program is 4.5 BBF. This is equivalent to 900,000 logging trucks.
