DescriptionEstimates of forest growth (increment) are used for evaluating productivity of land and to project growing stock into the future. Since volume is the accepted parameter for measuring forest growth (Spurr 1952), estimates of periodic volume increment for individual trees on inventory plots form the basis for appraising the productivity of the land and timber.
