Title: Estimating past diameters of mixed conifer species in the central Sierra Nevada

Author: Dolph, K. Leroy

Date: 1981

Source: Res. Note PSW-RN-353. Berkeley, CA: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Pacific Southwest Forest and Range Experiment Station. 3 p

Station ID: RN-PSW-353

Description: Tree diameter outside bark at an earlier period of growth can be estimated from the linear relationship of present inside bark and outside bark diameters at breast height. This note presents equations for estimating inside bark diameters, outside bark diameters, and past outside bark diameters for each of the mixed-conifer species in the central Sierra Nevada.

Keywords: Libocedrus decurrens, Pseudotsuga menziesii, Pinus ponderosa, Abies concolor, Pinus lambertiana, past diameters, bark measurement, Sierra Nevada
