Estimation of Volume Growth Using Zeide's Growth Types: An Updated Evaluation
Abstract:Zeide's (1993) two-point method for projecting volume growth was used to compare the predicted volume to a current intensive inventory of an Appalachian hardwood forest in northern West Virginia. Results indicate that the calculated growth type was stable and that the 8-year predicted volume was within 2% of the inventory estimate.
