Within each plot, all living trees with diameter at breast height (DBH) [greater than or equal to] 30 cm will be identified and their DBH measured.
Taper functions are equations that describe tree taper, representing the diametric variation along the stem as a function of diameter at breast height (DBH) and total height.
However, the inclusion of the diameter at breast height (DBH) can produce a model with the same prediction accuracy as that of logs obtained from the whole tree.
Sampling was done in four circular 1 000[m.sup.2] permanent plots with mean basal area of 2.34[m.sup.2] (ranging from 2.06-2.59[m.sup.2]), mean tree height of 25.0m (mean height ranged in the plots from 22.025.6m), dominant tree height of 29.1m (ranging from 26.2-32.9m) and mean diameter at breast height (DBH) of 42.5cm (ranging from 37.5-43.1cm).
Diameter at breast height (dbh; Mueller-Dombois and Ellenberg, 1974; Knight, 1978) was measured with a 10m tape.
This was a roughly 100-year-old, 21-acre stand with about 40 trees per acre, average height about 90 feet with a 17-inch dbh (diameter at breast height).
Cores were taken at breast height, with a vertical separation of 2-3 cm, and tree diameter at breast height (dbh) was measured.
where V is total stem tree volume over bark ([m.sup.3]), dbh is the diameter at breast height (cm), ht is total tree height (m), and [b.sub.0], [b.sub.1], and [b.sub.2] are parameter estimates.
Owing in part to regenerating clear-cuts from the spruce budworm era in the 1970s and 1980s, forest operations managers in Maine must manage an increasing percentage of small diameter timber stands (diameter at breast height [DBH] < 27 cm).
