Title: RE: Christmas Trees :)
I attended the ASCE Condition Assessment Seminar recently. I Have a card from Robert Ross Ph.D. from the USDA Forest Service, Forest products Laboratory in Wisconsin. I would think that he or someone in his office might be helpful. His number is (608) 231-9221, His fax (608) 231-9592.

I am not an expert on tree weights but I have been handling a large
number of treated dry poles, ranging in length from 20 to 40 feet at
If I were to guess, given the fact that the tree will be freshly cut and
have a full canopy of branches, I would say between 2,500 and 5,000
pounds depending on the species of tree & trunk diameter.
Hope that is of some use to you.
