Note: A Note on Carmean's Estimate of Height from Stem Analysis Data
Abstract:Carmean (1972) presented a method for adjusting height/age data from stem analysis. This adjustment is not correct when applied to that portion of a tree bole above the highest section point. In this part of a tree bole the adjustment always underestimates tree height for a given age. A simple modification is made to Carmean's method so that it is applicable to the top section of a tree. For. Sci. 37(1):368-369.
