INT-RP-164: Prediction of height increment for models of forest growth
Stage, Albert R. 1975. Prediction of height increment for models of forest growth. Res. Pap. INT-RP-164. Ogden, UT: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Intermountain Forest and Range Experiment Station. 20 p.
Functional forms of equations were derived for predicting 10-year periodic height increment of forest trees from height, diameter, diameter increment, and habitat type. Crown ratio was considered as an additional variable for prediction, but its contribution was negligible. Coefficients of the function were estimated for 10 species of trees growing in 10 habitat types of northern Idaho and northwestern Montana.
Keywords: height increment, tree-growth models, western white pine, western larch, Douglas-fir, grand fir, western hemlock, western redcedar, lodgepole pine, Engelmann spruce, subalpinefir, ponderosa pine, habitat type
