    Hybrid models offer the opportunity to improve future growth projections by combining advantages of both empirical and process-based modeling approaches. Hybrid models have been constructed in several regions and their performance relative to a purely empirical approach has varied. A hybrid model was constructed for intensively managed Douglas-fir plantations in the Pacific Northwest by embedding a hierarchy of components representing fundamental processes into a spatially implicit individual-tree model.
