Buy Article:


Although most primary forest products have only minimum size requirements, some have a maximum limitation as well. For products with a maximum scaling diameter, it was found that optimum tree diameter at breast height (the diameter class with the most product volume per tree) could be easily predicted by using only the maximum scaling diameter and product length. A prediction equation and an optimum-d.b.h. table based on this equation are presented.
