Abstract

The tree area ratio and the stand density index were fitted to data from Allegheny hardwood stands. The tree area ratio model provided a better fit to the data than the stand density index model, particularly when adapted to include 3 species groups: one based on Prunus serotina and Liriodendron tulipifera, one based on Acer rubrum, and one based on A. saccharum and Fagus grandifolia.-from Authors
