Potential basal area growth is proposed as a site quality index for pinyon-juniper woodlands in Nevada. Potential basal area growth can be determined by direct measurement in fully stocked stands and it can be estimated on any site with a regression model involving slope gradient, exposure, landform, and parent material. Potential biomass production is proportional to this site index. Forest Sci. 27:593-601.
