 English translation:Berechnungsmass, Einschnittmass Explanation:Measurement of length and depth. Without a sentence it would be hard to be more exact. Berechnungsmaß is actually calculation measurement(number of trees? length of tree?); Einschnittmaß, measurement of depth of cut into one tree or percentage of forest to be cut down.

Explanation:
to reiterate, more context is needed to make any definite suggestions. It makes a difference, for example, if the reference is to a block of trees (timber) to be cut, or already cut trees (timber) that is to be sawn into lumber.

One consideration is that 'Berechnung' can also mean 'estimate'. Could it be that two different units are used for estimating (whatever) and cutting?
