A Comparison of Methods for Estimating Cherrybark Oak Site Index
Abstract:Cherrybark oak site index values obtained by Baker and Broadfoot's field evaluation were compared to values from three sets of published curves for a range of age classes. The results demonstrate that Baker and Broadfoot's site evaluation technique is a reliable method for determining site index for cherrybark oak. The four methods gave comparable values except in the older age classes. South J. Appl. For. 12(2):115-116
