Estimating Stand Volume by Measuring Form Class Without Measuring Diameters

The full text article is temporarily unavailable.

We apologise for the inconvenience. Please try again later.

This study presents a form-class stand volume equation for total volume which necessitates only two sweeps with a Spiegel Relaskap, one at breast height and one at a fixed upper height, together with summations of the heights of the trees selected in each sweep. The equation will estimate stand volume almost as precisely as form-class tree volume equations that require upper-stem diameter measurements on each tree. The equation would thus appear to have practical advantages for use in inventory work.
