The theory is developed for fitting assumed distributions, such as the Weibull, to diameters which were derived from horizontal point samples. The method of maximum likelihood and the method of moments are discussed briefly as two ways of doing this. The results make it possible to fit assumed distributions to horizontal point data for such uses as providing growth and yield estimates by diameter class. Forest Sci. 32:146-148.
