Abstract:The accepted site index--relation between age and height of dominant tree--has not proved applicable to the oak forests of the Upper Mississippi Valley. A stndy by the authors shows that the product of average basal area and average height of dominant trees used as an index gives more reliable results, especially for stands which are below normal stocking.
