Biomass of Southern Hardwood Regeneration Estimated by Vertical Line Sampling
Three even-aged hardwood stands in Tennessee (ages 2, 4, and 6 years) were inventoried by use of vertical line sampling and equations that predict aboveground ovendry weight of wood and bark as a function of total height. Twenty-five line segments were sufficient to estimate yields with a sampling error of 15 percent. Two of the stands were well stocked, and produced an average of 1.4 ovendry tons per acre annually.
