Site-index curves may be constructed (1) to show development of stands that reach a given height at a certain age, or (2) for classification purposes. In the latter case, the numerical analysis is quite complicated. One method that may be used is discussed in this paper. The form of the final curves will, to a certain degree, depend upon the type of function used in the computations. Taking into account the great biological variations that occur naturally, the most important point seems to be that the function used is very flexible.
