A contribution to the estimation of reserved growing stock

The paper presents two currently used stochastic models which may be used for buffer stock assessment, i.e., the timber volume which should not be deducted from the allowable cut in case of a windthrow or other natural disaster. One model addresses the problem of how skewed the distribution of age classes tends to be in the long term, and the Markovian chain model (proposed by J.

The relation of the average height and the crown closure of a stand to its total volume and average diameter was studied in 113 pine stands in s. Finland. The standard errors of volume and diameter were [plus or minus] 13% and [plus or minus] 12%,...

Rotation period is shown to have lost its original meaning when applied to forests managed naturally (i.e. using the shelterwood system of regeneration). It is suggested that the term 'normal growing stock' should be restricted to even-a...

Measurements of crown and stem variables from infrared aerial photographs were compared with field measurements for estimating tree volume for pedunculate oak [Quercus robur] in 2 areas of Croatia. The mathematics of the 2 methods are explained.
