Research Paper

Title: Predicting height increment of young-growth mixed conifers in the Sierra Nevada

Author: Dolph, Leroy K.

Date: 1988

Source: Res. Paper PSW-RP-191. Berkeley, CA: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Pacific Southwest Forest and Range Experiment Station. 15 p

Station ID: RP-PSW-191

Description: Estimates of forest growth (increment) are used for evaluating productivity of land and to project growing stock into the future. Since volume is the accepted parameter for measuring forest growth (Spurr 1952), estimates of periodic volume increment for individual trees on inventory plots form the basis for appraising the productivity of the land and timber.

Key Words: stem analysis, increment (height), California white fir, incense-cedar, ponderosa pine, sugar pine, Jeffrey pine, Douglas-fir, Sierra Nevada, California
