    Description

    Initial stand statistics for the levels-of-growing-stock study installations were projected by the Douglas-fir stand simulation program (DFSIM) over the available periods of observation. Estimates were compared with observed volume and basal area growth, diameter change, and mortality. Overall agreement was reasonably good, although results indicate some biases and a need for revision of the upper density limit in the DFSIM program.
