Forty-five permanent research installations were established on Champion International Corporation ownership throughout western Montana in 1984–1985. Plots were located in stands with recent harvest activity with a range of harvest intensity and site characteristics. Using increment core data and allometric relationships, the growth trajectories of individual trees were reconstructed. Some 15 yr after cutting, growth rates were similar to or greater than yield table estimates for naturally regenerated, even-aged stands on similar sites with similar volumes. The Forest Vegetation Simulator (FVS) (Inland Empire variant, version 6.1) generally underestimated dimensional increment on the study stands. Residuals of dimensional growth were decreased when using FVS's self-calibration feature. West. J. Appl. For. 17(1):37–45.

  • Each regional journal of applied forestry focuses on research, practice, and techniques targeted to foresters and allied professionals in specific regions of the United States and Canada. The Western Journal of Applied Forestry covers the western United States, including Alaska, and western Canada; WJAF will also consider manuscripts reporting research in northern Mexico that has potential application in the southwestern United States.
