Abstract:Testing of four simple tree breast-high form-factor functions leads to the conclusion that the form-factor approach to preparing tree-volume tables is a good alternative to the weighted least-squares method, because of (1) the homogeneity of the form-factor variance and (2) the simplicity of the method.
