INT-RP-273: Biomass of singleleaf pinyon and Utah juniper

Miller, E. L.; Meeuwig. R. O.; Budy, J. D. 1981. Biomass of singleleaf pinyon and Utah juniper. USDA For. Serv. Res. Pap. INT-273, 18 p. Intermt. For. and Range Exp. Stn., Ogden, Utah 84401.

Biomass determinations in singleleaf pinyon (Pinus monophylla) - Utah juniper (Juniperus osteosperma) stands in Nevada indicate that stem diameter and average crown diameter are the tree measurements most highly correlated with ovendry weights. The equations and tables developed provide a means for estimating the total aboveground biomass as well as the weights for the various size fractions by species. The tables can also be used to estimate the cordwood and slash resulting from fuelwood harvesting operations.

Keywords: biomass, weight, Utah juniper (Juniperus osteosperma) singleleaf pinyon (Pinus monophylla), prediction equations, weight tables
