For many pnrposes it is important for foresters and others to know the amount of foliage of a tree or stand. This paper, based on both American and European data, shows how the weight of such foliage may be estimated either from the periodic annnal growth or the diameter of the trees concerned. The relation between leaf weight and diameter is the more useful of the two and appears to be applicable to trees of different sizes, crown classes, and ages at least up to the age of culmination of growth and beyond that age for tolerant species in all-aged stands.
