Abstract:Equations are presented for prediction of inside bark diameter from outside bark diameter, outside and inside bark diameter at breast height, relative height, and total height for shortleaf, loblolly, natural longleaf, and planted longleaf pines. These equations performed somewhat better than the three options in Grosenbaugh's (1974) STX computer program. Users can select equations that do or do not require bark measurement at breast height. Results from shortleaf data indicated that a single equation seemed adequate for different physiographic regions. South J. Appl. For. 10:220-224, Nov. 1986.
