Evaluation of Nine Taper Systems for Four Appalachian Hardwoods
Taper systems are useful for estimating the diameter at any height, the height at any diameter, and volume for any portion of tree boles. A test of nine systems on four Appalachian hardwoods was made to provide guidance in selection of the most appropriate equations. A model by Ormerod (1973) using coefficients by Martin (1981) was best for a total taper system. North. J. Appl. For. 11(1):24-26.
