DescriptionWhen a tree has been cut and only the stump remains as an indicator of tree size, a prediction equation can be used to estimate d.b.h. from stump measurements.An improved equation model was developed from stump measurement data collected by Forest Survey special study crews in North Carolina, Virginia, and South Carolina.Independent samples from Virginia and South Carolina were used to test equations derived from only the North Carolina sample, and a pooled sample of over 14,000 trees was used to compute equation coefficients for 53 southern tree species.
