The Place of Individual-Tree Data in Estimating Growth
Abstract:Growth estimates based on remeasured plots are recognized as the best available. But is it desirable to keep separate records for each tree on every plot? Although use of individual-tree data were found to reduce the sampling error, gathering the data increased costs by about 30 percent. The best solution seems to be a compromise: take individual-tree data from a sample of trees on the sample plots.
