Notes: Canopy Weight Distribution Affects Windspeed and Temperature in a Lodgepole Pine Forest
Abstract:Weight distribution of needles plus branches approximated a normally distributed population for 10 randomly selected trees in an 80-year-old stand in southern Wyoming. Wind-speeds were minimum and mid-day air temperatures maximum in the midcanopy region where needles and branch weight were concentrated. Forest Sci. 20:369-371.
