DescriptionThis Note illustrates that adding a constant to 25-year index values for a plantation does not produce precise equivalent values on a 50-year basis at age 25. It further illustrates that a conversion based on yield is more accurate than one based on height. Precise equivalent values for 25-year and 50-year sites are developed at age 25 on the basis of comparisons of cubic yield for planted and natural stands.
