Abstract:

Generalized stand-level basal area prediction and projection equations for unthinned as well as thinned plantations are proposed. Appropriate slash pine data sets from long-term spacing and thinning studies, representing a wide range in site quality, planting densities, and thinning intensities, are used to demonstrate the utility of these equations. Examples of the use of these equations are given to illustrate the importance of past thinning history for the prediction and projection of basal area in plantations of the same age, trees per acre, and average dominant height. Forest Sci. 32:626-633.
