Thinning Decisions Using Stand Density Indices: The Influence of Uncertainty

The full text article is temporarily unavailable.

We apologise for the inconvenience. Please try again later.

In practice, stand density indices must be estimated from sample data, leading to uncertainty in both estimates of stand density and resulting thinning decisions. We provide a statistical framework for thinning decisions based on density thresholds. We show how to assess the adequacy of existing cruise data to guide the thinning process, and to design more cost-effective sampling plans. We present this information in a series of graphs which, when used in conjunction with density management diagrams, can improve rational thinning decisions. West. J. Appl. For. 12(3):89-92.
