Three yield projection models are compared and contrasted. All three models project yield implicitly by first projecting stand tables. The first model uses the Weibull probability density function, the second a percentile-based algorithm, and last a modification of an individual tree distance independent basal area projection model. It is shown that, for most criteria evaluated, the model which makes use of the distance-independent basal area projection algorithm is superior. For. Sci. 36(2):413-424.
