DescriptionAn application section presents tables for estimating foliage and branchwood (wood plus bark) of aspen tree crowns; the branchwood is subdivided by (1) living and dead material and by (2) living material alone into diameter size groups. A documentation section describes the derivation of equations and compares the equations derived with those derived by other researchers.
