A Site Evaluation Concept
Abstract:There is a current trend among many foresters concerned with site relationships to seek more precise methods for evaluating growth potential. Frequently the approach to this problem has been to reduce observations to single factor measurements related by formulae to site-index ratings or other expressions of growth. The authors emphasize consideration of all the effective factors which influence production throughout the life of the stand. The dynamic rather than the static nature of site quality is stressed. The concept of current site index will be new to many readers.
