Notes: Tree Volume Table Growth Relationships Possibly Affected by Fertilization
Abstract:Thirty Douglas-fir trees representing a fertilized and a control stand in southwest Washington were felled and sectioned. A composite variable was computed for each tree that reflected deviation from volume equation predicted growth. It was further adjusted to account for growth patterns before fertilization. A nonparametric test on the two sets of trees suggests that accuracy of tree volume equations, when used to compute growth, may be biased by fertilization. Forest Sci. 22:58-60.
