A comparison of two parameter prediction methods for stand structure in Finland

Silva Fennica 34(4): 331-349

A comparison of two parameter prediction methods for stand structure in Finland

The objective of this paper was to predict a model for describing stand structure in terms of tree height (h) and diameter at breast height (dbh). The research material consisted of data collected from 64 stands of Norway spruce (Picea abies) and 91 stands of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) located in southern Finland. Both stand types contained birch (Betula pendula and B. pubescens) admixtures.
