    Description

    A technique for estimating stand average dominant height based solely on field inventory data is investigated. Using only 45.0919 percent of the largest trees per acre in the diameter distribution resulted in estimates of average dominant height that were within 4.3 feet of the actual value, when averaged over stands of very different structure and history. Cubic foot and board foot yields on a per acre basis can be easily obtained based solely on field tally of tree diameters and total height on inventory samples.
