Property tax, forest landLand gradesOperability classes.

(1) Introduction. RCW 84.33.130 requires that the department of revenue annually adjust and certify forest land values to be used by county assessors in preparing assessment rolls. These values are based upon land grades and operability classes. The assessors use maps that provide the land grades and operability classes for forest land in Washington.
This rule explains how the land grades and operability classes provided in the maps used by the assessors were established. The forest land values are annually updated in WAC 458-40-540. For the purposes of this rule and WAC 458-40-540, the term "forest land" is synonymous with timberland and means all land in any contiguous ownership of twenty or more acres which is primarily devoted to and used for growing and harvesting timber and means land only.
(2) Land grades. The land grades are established based upon timber species and site index. "Site index (plural site indices)" is the productive quality of forest land, determined by the total height reached by the dominant and codominant trees on a particular site at a given age.

(3) Operability classes. Operability classes are established according to intrinsic characteristics of soils and geomorphic features. The criteria for each class apply statewide.
(a) Class 1-Favorable. Stable soils that slope less than thirty percent. Forest operations do not significantly impact soil productivity and soil erosion. Forest operations, such as roading and logging, are carried out with minimal limitations.
(b) Class 2-Average. Stable soils that slope less than thirty percent, but on which significant soil erosion, compaction, and displacement may occur as a result of forest operations.
(c) Class 3-Difficult. Soils with one or both of the following characteristics:
(i) Stable soils that slope between thirty and sixty-five percent; and
(ii) Soils that slope between zero and sixty-five percent, but display evidence that rapid mass movement may occur as a direct result of forest operations.
(d) Class 4-Extreme. All soils that slope more than sixty-five percent.
(e) Variations. Unique conditions found in any one geographic area may impact forest operations to a greater degree than the above classes permit. With documented evidence, the department of revenue may place the soil in a more severe class.

458-40-610
Timber excise taxDefinitions.

(1) Introduction. The purpose of WAC 458-40-610 through 458-40-680 is to prescribe the policies and procedures for the taxation of timber harvested from public and private forest lands as required by RCW 84.33.010 through 84.33.096.
Unless the context clearly requires otherwise, the definitions in this rule apply to WAC 458-40-610 through 458-40-680. In addition to the definitions found in this rule, definitions of technical forestry terms may be found in The Dictionary of Forestry, 1998, edited by John A. Helms, and published by the Society of American Foresters.
(2) Codominant trees. Trees whose crowns form the general level of the main canopy and receive full light from above, but comparatively little light from the sides.
(3) Competitive sales. The offering for sale of timber which is advertised to the general public for sale at public auction under terms wherein all qualified potential buyers have an equal opportunity to bid on the sale, and the sale is awarded to the highest qualified bidder. The term "competitive sales" includes making available to the general public permits for the removal of forest products.
(4) Cord measurement. A measure of wood with dimensions of 4 feet by 4 feet by 8 feet (128 cubic feet).
(5) Damaged timber. Timber where the stumpage values have been materially reduced from the values shown in the applicable stumpage value tables due to damage resulting from fire, blow down, ice storm, flood, or other sudden unforeseen causes.
(6) Dominant trees. Trees whose crowns are higher than the general level of the main canopy and which receive full light from the sides as well as from above.
(7) Firewood. Commercially traded firewood is considered scaled utility log grade as defined in subsection (14) of this section.
(8) Forest-derived biomass. Forest-derived biomass consists of tree limbs, tops, needles, leaves, and other woody debris that are residues from such activities as timber harvesting, forest thinning, fire suppression, or forest health. Forest-derived biomass does not include scalable timber products or firewood (defined in WAC 458-40-650).
(9) Harvest unit. An area of timber harvest, defined and mapped by the harvester before harvest, having the same stumpage value area, harvest adjustments, harvester, and harvest identification. The harvest identification may be a department of natural resources forest practice application number, public agency harvesting permit number, public sale contract number, or other unique identifier assigned to the timber harvest area prior to harvest operations. A harvest unit may include more than one section, but harvest unit may not overlap a county boundary.
(10) Harvester. Every person who from the person's own land or from the land of another under a right or license granted by lease or contract, either directly or by contracting with others for the necessary labor or mechanical services, fells, cuts, or takes timber for sale or for commercial or industrial use. The term "harvester" does not include persons performing under contract the necessary labor or mechanical services for a harvester. In cases where the identity of the harvester is in doubt, the department of revenue will consider the owner of the land from which the timber was harvested to be the harvester and the one liable for paying the tax.
The definition above applies except when the United States or any instrumentality thereof, the state, including its departments and institutions and political subdivisions, or any municipal corporation therein so fells, cuts, or takes timber for sale or for commercial or industrial use. When a governmental entity described above fells, cuts, or takes timber, the harvester is the first person, other than another governmental entity as described above, acquiring title to or a possessory interest in such timber.
(11) Harvesting and marketing costs. Only those costs directly and exclusively associated with harvesting merchantable timber from the land and delivering it to the buyer. The term includes the costs of piling logging residue on site, and costs to abate extreme fire hazard when required by the department of natural resources. Harvesting and marketing costs do not include the costs of other consideration (for example, reforestation, permanent road construction), treatment to timber or land that is not a necessary part of a commercial harvest (for example, precommercial thinning, brush clearing, land grading, stump removal), costs associated with maintaining the option of land conversion (for example, county fees, attorney fees, specialized site assessment or evaluation fees), or any other costs not directly and exclusively associated with the harvesting and marketing of merchantable timber. The actual harvesting and marketing costs must be used in all instances where documented records are available. When the taxpayer is unable to provide documented proof of such costs, or when harvesting and marketing costs cannot be separated from other costs, the deduction for harvesting and marketing costs is thirty-five percent of the gross receipts from the sale of the logs.
(12) Legal description. A description of an area of land using government lots and standard general land office subdivision procedures. If the boundary of the area is irregular, the physical boundary must be described by metes and bounds or by other means that will clearly identify the property.
(13) Log grade. Those grades listed in the "Official Log Scaling and Grading Rules" developed and authored by the Northwest Log Rules Advisory Group (Advisory Group). "Utility grade" means logs that do not meet the minimum requirements of peeler or sawmill grades as defined in the "Official Log Scaling and Grading Rules" published by the Advisory Group but are suitable for the production of firm useable chips to an amount of not less than fifty percent of the gross scale; and meeting the following minimum requirements:
(a) Minimum gross diameter—two inches.
(b) Minimum gross length—twelve feet.
(c) Minimum volume—ten board feet net scale.
(d) Minimum recovery requirements—one hundred percent of adjusted gross scale in firm useable chips.
(14) Lump sum sale. Also known as a cash sale or an installment sale, it is a sale of timber where all the volume offered is sold to the highest bidder.
(15) MBF. One thousand board feet measured in Scribner Decimal C Log Scale Rule.
(16) Noncompetitive sales. Sales of timber in which the purchaser has a preferential right to purchase the timber or a right of first refusal.
(17) Other consideration. Value given in lieu of cash as payment for stumpage, such as improvements to the land that are of a permanent nature. Some examples of permanent improvements are as follows: Construction of permanent roads; installation of permanent bridges; stockpiling of rock intended to be used for construction or reconstruction of permanent roads; installation of gates, cattle guards, or fencing; and clearing and reforestation of property.
(18) Permanent road. A road built as part of the harvesting operation which is to have a useful life subsequent to the completion of the harvest.
(19) Private timber. All timber harvested from privately owned lands.
(20) Public timber. Timber harvested from federal, state, county, municipal, or other government owned lands.
(21) Remote island. An area of land which is totally surrounded by water at normal high tide and which has no bridge or causeway connecting it to the mainland.
(22) Scale sale. A sale of timber in which the amount paid for timber in cash and/or other consideration is the arithmetic product of the actual volume harvested and the unit price at the time of harvest.
(23) Small harvester. A harvester who harvests timber from privately or publicly owned forest land in an amount not exceeding two million board feet in a calendar year.
(24) Species. A grouping of timber based on biological or physical characteristics. In addition to the designations of species or subclassifications defined in Agriculture Handbook No. 451 Checklist of United States Trees (native and naturalized) found in the state of Washington, the following are considered separate species for the purpose of harvest classification used in the stumpage value tables:
(a) Other conifer. All conifers not separately designated in the stumpage value tables. See WAC 458-40-660.
(b) Other hardwood. All hardwoods not separately designated in the stumpage value tables. See WAC 458-40-660.
(c) Special forest products. The following are considered to be separate species of special forest products: Christmas trees (various species), posts (various species), western redcedar flatsawn and shingle blocks, western redcedar shake blocks and boards.
(d) Chipwood. All timber processed to produce chips or chip products delivered to an approved chipwood destination that has been approved in accordance with the provisions of WAC 458-40-670 or otherwise reportable in accordance with the provisions of WAC 458-40-670.
(e) Small logs. All conifer logs excluding redcedar harvested in stumpage value area 6 or 7 generally measuring seven inches or less in scaling diameter, purchased by weight measure at designated small log destinations that have been approved in accordance with the provisions of WAC 458-40-670. Log diameter and length is measured in accordance with the Eastside Log Scaling Rules developed and authored by the Northwest Log Rules Advisory Group, with length not to exceed twenty feet.
(f) Sawlog. For purposes of timber harvest in stumpage value area 6, a sawlog is a log having a net scale of not less than 33 1/3% of gross scale, nor less than ten board feet and meeting the following minimum characteristics: Gross scaling diameter of five inches and a gross scaling length of eight feet.
(g) Piles. All logs sold for use or processing as piles that meet the specifications described in the most recently published edition of the Standard Specification for Round Timber Piles (Designation: D 25) of the American Society for Testing and Materials.
(h) Poles. All logs sold for use or processing as poles that meet the specifications described in the most recently published edition of the National Standard for Wood Poles—Specifications and Dimensions (ANSI 05.1) of the American National Standards Institute.
(25) Stumpage. Timber, having commercial value, as it exists before logging.
(26) Stumpage value. The true and fair market value of stumpage for purposes of immediate harvest.
(27) Stumpage value area (SVA). An area with specified boundaries which contains timber having similar growing, harvesting and marketing conditions.
(28) Taxable stumpage value. The value of timber as defined in RCW 84.33.035(7), and this chapter. Except as provided below for small harvesters and public timber, the taxable stumpage value is the appropriate value for the species of timber harvested as set forth in the stumpage value tables adopted under this chapter.
(a) Small harvester option. Small harvesters may elect to calculate the excise tax in the manner provided by RCW 84.33.073 and 84.33.074. The taxable stumpage value must be determined by one of the following methods as appropriate:
(i) Sale of logs. Timber which has been severed from the stump, bucked into various lengths and sold in the form of logs has a taxable stumpage value equal to the actual gross receipts for the logs, less any costs associated with harvesting and marketing the timber.
(ii) Sale of stumpage. When standing timber is sold and harvested within twenty-four months of the date of sale, its taxable stumpage value is the actual purchase price in cash and/or other consideration for the stumpage for the most recent sale prior to harvest. If a person purchases stumpage, harvests the timber more than twenty-four months after purchase of the stumpage, and chooses to report under the small harvester option, the taxable stumpage value is the actual gross receipts for the logs, less any costs associated with harvesting and marketing the timber. See WAC 458-40-626 for timing of tax liability.
(b) Public timber. The taxable stumpage value for public timber sales is determined as follows:
(i) Competitive sales. The taxable stumpage value is the actual purchase price in cash and/or other consideration. The value of other consideration is the fair market value of the other consideration; provided that if the other consideration is permanent roads, the value is the appraised value as appraised by the seller. If the seller does not provide an appraised value for roads, the value is the actual costs incurred by the purchaser for constructing or improving the roads. Other consideration includes additional services required from the stumpage purchaser for the benefit of the seller when these services are not necessary for the harvesting or marketing of the timber. For example, under a single stumpage sale's contract, when the seller requires road abandonment (as defined in WAC 222-24-052(3)) of constructed or reconstructed roads which are necessary for harvesting and marketing the timber, the construction and abandonment costs are not taxable. Abandonment activity on roads that exist prior to a stumpage sale is not necessary for harvesting and marketing the purchased timber and those costs are taxable.
(ii) Noncompetitive sales. The taxable stumpage value is determined using the department of revenue's stumpage value tables as set forth in this chapter. Qualified harvesters may use the small harvester option.
(iii) Sale of logs. The taxable stumpage value for public timber sold in the form of logs is the actual purchase price for the logs in cash and/or other consideration less appropriate deductions for harvesting and marketing costs. Refer above for a definition of "harvesting and marketing costs."
(iv) Defaulted sales and uncompleted contracts. In the event of default on a public timber sale contract, wherein the taxpayer has made partial payment for the timber but has not removed any timber, no tax is due. If part of the sale is logged and the purchaser fails to complete the harvesting, taxes are due on the amount the purchaser has been billed by the seller for the volume removed to date.

Timber excise taxTax liabilityPrivate timber, tax due when timber harvested.

(1) Introduction. For purposes of determining the proper calendar quarter in which the harvester is to pay tax on timber harvested from private land the tax is due and payable on the last day of the month following the end of the calendar quarter in which the timber was harvested.
(2) Personal use of harvested timber by landowner. A landowner harvesting timber for commercial or industrial use is subject to the timber excise tax upon the value of harvested timber. See RCW 84.33.041 and 84.33.035. A landowner cutting timber for that landowner's own personal use is not subject to the timber excise tax.
A landowner selling, bartering, or trading timber is making commercial use of that timber. A landowner providing that individual's own business with timber is making commercial or industrial use of that timber. For example, a logging contractor using timber by-products for hog fuel has made industrial use of that timber. An individual engaged in the construction industry using lumber from that landowner's timber to build a structure meant for sale by that individual or that individual's business has also made industrial use of the timber. On the other hand, a landowner makes personal use of timber when that individual uses the timber, a portion of the cut timber, or a by-product from the timber as:
(a) Firewood in that individual's stove or fireplace;
(b) Lumber for that individual's personal residence, garage or storage structure;
(c) Lumber for a fence around that individual's personal residence or private property not used for commercial purposes; or
(d) Sawdust or shavings for that individual's garden or yard.

Timber excise taxTax liabilityPublic timber, lump sum and scale sales.

For purposes of determining the proper quarter in which the harvester is to pay taxes on timber harvested from public land, the taxes due under RCW 84.33.041 are due and payable as follows:
(1) Lump-sum sale. The tax is due and payable on the last day of the month following the quarter in which the purchaser is billed by the seller for the timber: Provided, That if payments are made to the seller before any harvest, road construction or other work has begun on the timber sale contract, payment of taxes may be postponed until the quarter in which harvest or other contract work begins. In the quarter that harvest commences, taxes are due and payable on all billings accrued by the buyer in all prior quarters as well as the current quarter.
(2) Scale sale. The tax is due and payable on the last day of the month following the calendar quarter in which the purchaser is billed by the seller for the timber: Provided, That if payments are made to the seller before any harvest, road construction or other work has begun on the timber sale contract, payment of taxes may be postponed until the quarter in which harvest or other contract work begins. In the quarter that harvest commences, taxes are due and payable on all billings accrued by the buyer in all prior quarters as well as the current quarter. Indexing or escalation amounts must be included in the quarter in which they apply.
(3) Other considerations. Tax due on considerations other than cash is due and payable the first quarter of harvest, or the first quarter the costs are incurred, but not later than the last quarter of harvest: Provided, That if effective road credits (United States Forest Service Sales) are used as payment for stumpage, the tax is due in the quarter in which the road credits are applied as payment.

(3) Harvest value adjustments. The stumpage values in subsection (2) of this rule for the designated stumpage value areas are adjusted for various logging and harvest conditions, subject to the following:
(a) No harvest adjustment is allowed for special forest products, chipwood, or small logs.
(b) Conifer and hardwood stumpage value rates cannot be adjusted below one dollar per MBF.
(c) Except for the timber yarded by helicopter, a single logging condition adjustment applies to the entire harvest unit. The taxpayer must use the logging condition adjustment class that applies to a majority (more than 50%) of the acreage in that harvest unit. If the harvest unit is reported over more than one quarter, all quarterly returns for that harvest unit must report the same logging condition adjustment. The helicopter adjustment applies only to the timber volume from the harvest unit that is yarded from stump to landing by helicopter.
(d) The volume per acre adjustment is a single adjustment class for all quarterly returns reporting a harvest unit. A harvest unit is established by the harvester prior to harvesting. The volume per acre is determined by taking the volume logged from the unit excluding the volume reported as chipwood or small logs and dividing by the total acres logged. Total acres logged does not include leave tree areas (RMZ, UMZ, forested wetlands, etc.,) over 2 acres in size.
(e) A domestic market adjustment applies to timber which meet the following criteria:
(i) Public timber - Harvest of timber not sold by a competitive bidding process that is prohibited under the authority of state or federal law from foreign export may be eligible for the domestic market adjustment. The adjustment may be applied only to those species of timber that must be processed domestically. According to type of sale, the adjustment may be applied to the following species:
Federal Timber Sales: All species except Alaska-cedar. (Stat. Ref. - 36 C.F.R. 223.10)
State, and Other Nonfederal, Public Timber Sales: Western Redcedar only. (Stat. Ref. - 50 U.S.C. appendix 2406.1)
(ii) Private timber - Harvest of private timber that is legally restricted from foreign export, under the authority of The Forest Resources Conservation and Shortage Relief Act (Public Law 101-382), (16 U.S.C. Sec. 620 et seq.); the Export Administration Act of 1979 (50 U.S.C. App. 2406(i)); a Cooperative Sustained Yield Unit Agreement made pursuant to the act of March 29, 1944 (16 U.S.C. Sec. 583-583i); or Washington Administrative Code (WAC 240-15-015(2)) is also eligible for the Domestic Market Adjustment.

(4) Damaged timber. Timber harvesters planning to remove timber from areas having damaged timber may apply to the department of revenue for an adjustment in stumpage values. The application must contain a map with the legal descriptions of the area, an accurate estimate of the volume of damaged timber to be removed, a description of the damage sustained by the timber with an evaluation of the extent to which the stumpage values have been materially reduced from the values shown in the applicable tables, and a list of estimated additional costs to be incurred resulting from the removal of the damaged timber. The application must be received and approved by the department of revenue before the harvest commences. Upon receipt of an application, the department of revenue will determine the amount of adjustment to be applied against the stumpage values. Timber that has been damaged due to sudden and unforeseen causes may qualify.
(a) Sudden and unforeseen causes of damage that qualify for consideration of an adjustment include:
(i) Causes listed in RCW 84.33.091; fire, blow down, ice storm, flood.
(ii) Others not listed; volcanic activity, earthquake.
(b) Causes that do not qualify for adjustment include:
(i) Animal damage, root rot, mistletoe, prior logging, insect damage, normal decay from fungi, and pathogen caused diseases; and
(ii) Any damage that can be accounted for in the accepted normal scaling rules through volume or grade reductions.
(c) The department of revenue will not grant adjustments for applications involving timber that has already been harvested but will consider any remaining undisturbed damaged timber scheduled for removal if it is properly identified.
(d) The department of revenue will notify the harvester in writing of approval or denial. Instructions will be included for taking any adjustment amounts approved.
(5) Forest-derived biomass, has a $0/ton stumpage value.

Timber excise taxChipwood and small log destinations.

(1) Introduction. This rule describes the procedure by which businesses that process chipwood, chipwood products, and/or small logs can become approved chipwood or small log destinations.
(2) Chipwood destinations. Businesses that process logs to produce chips or chip products may be designated as approved "chipwood destinations." Logs delivered to the log yards approved as "chipwood destinations" for the purpose of being chipped may be reported as chipwood and have the volume measured by weight.
(a) The department of revenue will maintain a current list of approved chipwood destinations. This list will be updated as necessary and will be formally reviewed by the department of revenue at least twice a year. A list of approved chipwood destinations is available from the forest tax section of the department of revenue.
(b) A log processor in the business of processing logs to produce chips or chip products that has not been designated as an approved destination may file an application to be listed as an approved chipwood destination. The application should be submitted to the Department of Revenue, Forest Tax Section, P.O. Box 47472, Olympia, Washington 98504-7472. To qualify as an approved destination, not less than ninety percent of the weight volume of logs delivered to and purchased by the log processor for chipping at a specified log yard or location must be processed to produce chips or chip products.
(c) Any applicant seeking administrative review of the department of revenue's decision made under (b) of this subsection may seek review of the decision in accordance with WAC 458-20-100 (Informal administrative reviews).
(3) Logs chipped in the woods. Logs chipped in the woods may also be reported as chipwood. Volume must be measured in net weight of green chips.
(4) Other chipwood processing locations. Logs processed at locations other than those listed on the approved list of chipwood destinations maintained by the department of revenue and other than as provided in subsection (3) of this rule may be reported as chipwood volume when scaled as utility grade logs, based on log scaling or upon approved sample log scaling methods.
If a harvester reports chipwood volume that was delivered to a location that is not listed as an approved chipwood destination and there has been no log scaling or approved sample log scaling, the chipwood volume so reported will be converted by the department of revenue to the appropriate sawlog volume in accordance with WAC 458-40-680 for purposes of timber excise taxation.
(5) Small log destinations. Businesses that process small logs as defined in WAC 458-40-610 may be designated as approved "small log destinations."
(a) The department of revenue will maintain a current list of approved small log destinations. This list will be updated as necessary and will be formally reviewed by the department of revenue at least twice a year. A list of approved small log destinations is available from the forest tax section of the department of revenue.
(b) A log processor in the business of processing small logs that has not been designated as an approved destination may file an application to be listed as an approved small log destination. The application should be submitted to the Department of Revenue, Forest Tax Section, P.O. Box 47472, Olympia, Washington 98504-7472.
(c) Any applicant seeking administrative review of the department of revenue's decision made under (b) of this subsection may seek review of the decision in accordance with WAC 458-20-100 (Informal administrative reviews).

458-40-680
Timber excise taxVolume harvestedApproved scaling and grading methodsSample scalingConversions.

(1) Introduction. The acceptable log scaling and grading standard for stumpage value areas 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 9 is the Scribner Decimal C log rule as described in the most current edition of the "Official Log Scaling and Grading Rules" developed and authored by the Northwest Log Rules Advisory Group. The acceptable log scaling standard for stumpage value areas 6 and 7 is the Scribner Decimal C log rule described in the most current edition of the "Eastside Log Scaling Handbook" as published by the Northwest Log Rules Advisory Group, except that timber harvested in stumpage value areas 6 and 7 must be scaled using the current regional taper rules at the point of origin.
(2) Special services scaling. Special services scaling as described in the "Official Log Scaling and Grading Rules" developed and authored by the Northwest Log Rules Advisory Group may not be used for tax reporting purposes without prior written approval of the department of revenue.
(3) Sample scaling. Sample scaling may not be used for tax reporting purposes without prior written approval of the department of revenue. To be approved, sample scaling must be in accordance with the following guidelines:
(a) Sample selection, scaling, and grading must be conducted on a continuous basis as the unit is harvested.
(b) The sample must be taken in such a manner to assure random, unbiased sample selection in accordance with accepted statistical tests of sampling.
(c) The sample used to determine total volume, species, and quality of timber harvested for a given reporting period must have been taken during that period.
(d) Sample frequency must be large enough to meet board foot variation accuracy limits of plus or minus two and five-tenths percent standard error at the ninety-five percent confidence level.
(e) Harvesters, or a purchaser with an approved sample scaling method, must maintain sufficient supporting documentation to allow the department of revenue to verify source data, and test statistical reliability of sample scale systems.
(f) Exceptions: Sampling designs and accuracy standards other than those described herein may only be used with the prior written approval of the department of revenue.
(4) Conversions to Scribner Decimal C Scale. The following definitions, tables, and conversion factors must be used in determining taxable volume for timber harvested that was not originally scaled by the Scribner Decimal C Log Rule. Conversion methods other than those listed are not to be used for tax reporting purposes without prior written approval of the department of revenue. Harvesters who wish to use a method of conversion other than those listed below must obtain written approval from the department of revenue before harvesting. Purchasers may obtain written approval of a sample scaling method from the department of revenue. The department will maintain a list of purchasers with an approved sample scaling method. A harvester may obtain this list and a summary of the approved method for specific purchasers from the department of revenue. If a harvester has not obtained approval of a sample scaling method before harvesting, the harvester may use a purchaser's approved sample scaling method. If the harvester, or purchaser, fails to use an approved sample scaling method or other method of conversion approved by these rules to set the purchase price, the department will establish its own method, as the circumstances require, to determine a reasonable estimate of the volume of timber sold.
(a) Weight measurement. If the sole unit of measure used to set the purchase price for logs from harvest units was weight, and the harvester does not use an approved method of sample scaling to determine volume for the stumpage value tables, the following tables must be used for converting to Scribner Decimal C, if the harvest volume per species meets the definition listed in the table. If weight is the sole measure used for a harvest unit and the harvest volume per species does not meet the definition listed in the table below, the department will establish its own method, as the circumstances require, to determine a reasonable estimate of the volume of timber sold. Harvesters must keep records to substantiate the species and quality codes reported. For tax reporting purposes, a ton equals 2,000 pounds.

(b) Cord measurement. For the purposes of converting cords into Scribner volume:
(i) In stumpage value areas 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 9 logs with an average scaling diameter of 8 inches and larger must be converted to Scribner volume using 400 board feet per cord. Logs having an average scaling diameter of less than 8 inches must be converted to Scribner volume using 330 board feet per cord.
(ii) In stumpage value areas 6 and 7 logs with an average scaling diameter of 8 inches and larger must be converted to Scribner volume using 470 board feet per cord. Logs having an average scaling diameter of less than 8 inches must be converted to Scribner volume using 390 board feet per cord.
(iii) A cord of Western Redcedar shake or shingle blocks must be converted to Scribner volume using 600 board feet per cord.
(iv) Firewood must be converted at a rate of 3 tons per cord.
(c) Cants or lumber from portable mills. To convert from lumber tally to Scribner volume:
(i) In stumpage value areas 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 9 multiply the lumber tally for the individual species by 75%, and round to the nearest one thousand board feet (MBF); or
(ii) In stumpage value areas 6 and 7 multiply the lumber tally for the individual species by 88%, and round to the nearest one thousand board feet (MBF).
(d) Log scale conversion. Timber harvested in stumpage value areas 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 9 and which has been scaled by methods and procedures published in the "Eastside Log Scaling Handbook" must have the volumes reported reduced by eighteen percent. Timber harvested in stumpage value areas 6 and 7 and which has been scaled by methods and procedures published in the "Official Log Scaling and Grading Rules" developed and authored by the Northwest log rules advisory group, must have the volumes reported increased by eighteen percent.
(e) Timber pole and piling volume tables. Harvesters of poles must use the following tables to determine the Scribner board foot volume for each pole length and class:
