Notes: Biomass Estimation for Virginia Pine Trees and Stands
Abstract:Data from 501 trees from 10 stands were used to develop equations for estimating dry weight of stem wood, stem bark, total stem, 1-year-old needles, total needles, live branches, and total branches of individual trees. Stand weight of stems was closely related to stand basal area and mean height. Stand live-branch weight varied inversely with stocking. Weight of 1-year-old foliage on the stands increased with stocking and site index. Forest Sci. 26:107-111.
