Variables for Predicting Inside-Bark Diameters of Upper Stems of Appalachian Hardwoods
Abstract:Multiple regression equations for predicting upper-stem, inside-bark diameters of seven Appalachian hardwoods were selected by screening all possible combinations of seven independent variables. Independent variables involving diameter measurements appeared in more equations than those involving height measurements. Comparisons to the bark options used in the STX program are provided.
