Compatible Tree Volume and Taper Functions for Pitch Pine
Abstract:Individual tree taper, volume ratio, and total volume equations are presented for pitch pine. The volume ratio equations may be used to determine merchantable volume to any height or upper stem diameter. The equations are compatible and are based on a recommended taper curve. Examples of how to employ the equations are presented. North J. Appl. For. 2:14-16, Mar. 1985.
