Volume equations of the form V = b0 + b1 D²H were developed to estimate total volume inside and outside bark for yellow-poplar (Liriodendron tulipfera L.) in the hilly Coastal Plain of Alabama. Volumes predicted using the outside-bark equation were determined to be different from those predicted by the comparable volume equation developed for southern Appalachian yellow-poplar. A nonlinear ratio model was developed to estimate the volume to any specified top diameter.
