Interim Models for Basal Area and Volume Projection of Uneven-Aged Loblolly-Shortleaf Pine Stands
Abstract:Equations are presented for estimating current volume, projected basal area, and projected volume for stands of loblolly-shortleaf (Pinus taeda L.-Pinus echinata Mill.) pine managed under the selection system. The independent variables are initial stand basal area and elapsed time. The estimates should provide a guide to the cubic-foot volume production that might be expected from stands on average sites (site indices 80-90 ft.), medium basal areas (30 to 70 sq. ft.) and time periods of 10 years or less.
