    Description

    In determining the productivity of a certain piece of forest land, it may be desirable to estimate the site index for a certain tree species even though it is not possible to use ordinary measurements of age and height. This situation may arise either because trees of the particular species are not now present in the stand, or because trees of this species that are present in the stand are not suitable for use in determining site index.
