    Description

    Taper (stem-profile) functions are presented for natural shortleaf pine (Pinus echinata Mill.) trees growing in the West Gulf area. These functions, when integrated, permit the prediction of volume between any two heights on a stem and, conversely by iteration, the volume between any two diameters on a stem. Examples are given of use of the functions, and a computer program is available to evaluate the functions for cubic-foot volume equations.
