DescriptionThe segmented polynomial stem profile model of Max and Burkhart was applied to seven tree species in the Rocky Mountain Region of the Forest Service. Errors were reduced over the entire data set by use of second-stage models that adjust for transformation bias and explained weak patterns in the residual diameter predictions.
