I noticed your change, and I think for now, that recording above buttress circumference and CBH could be helpful. One problem is that in using above buttress height, it gives a disadvantage to species that have buttresses. Even worse, I measured two large Kapock trees Ceiba pentandra at 198' each, but the much smaller one in volume had buttresses to only about 10 feet, while the huge volume one had buttresses up to 45'. Never the less, circumference above the buttresses is certainly better than CBH for these trees, but I hope some genius comes up with a solution other than measuring all the volumes. I have included an image of a Wild Cashew which also has problems related to periodic flooding.
