Sixteen common hardwood species were sampled in young pine plantations of the Virginia Piedmont to develop predictive equations for leaf area from stem cross-sectional area. Leaf area (total surface area) was found to be linearly related to stem cross-sectional area for each species, with coefficients of determination (R²) ranging from 0.87 to 0.98. Slope coefficients ranged from 0.336 to 0.833 m²/cm² and were significantly different for all but two of the species. A comparison within species showed no significant difference in slopes between single stems and multistemmed sprouts. Forest Sci. 32:818-821.
