Height-Diameter and Height-Diameter-Age Equations For Second-Growth Douglas-Fir
A number of height-diameter and height-diameter-age equations were compared for second-growth Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii (Mirb.) Franco). Most gave similar results within the range of the data. Some appeared undesirable because of unreasonable curve shapes when extrapolated. For remeasured plots, use of a single height-diameter-age equation for each plot rather than individual height-diameter curves for each measurement will give more accurate and more consistent estimates of volume, periodic increment, and site index. A number of suitable equation forms are suggested.
