Description: Regression equations to predict total and stem-only above-ground dry biomass for six species (Acacia melanoxylon, Albizio falcataria, Eucalyptus globulus, E. grandis, E. robusta, and E. urophylla) were developed by felling and measuring 2- to 6-year-old plantation trees on the island of Hawaii. Logarithmic transformations of the equations using diameter and height are recommended for estimating Albizia falcataria and E. grandis biomass, whereas logarithmic equations using diameter only are recommended for the other four species that have fewer sample trees collected from a single location.

Key Words: Eucalyptus, Acacia, Albizia, prediction equations, biomass, plantations, Hawaii
