Description: Measurements of more that 15,000 Indiana and Illinois trees were summarized by species and diameter class into tables of mean annual diameter growth, annual probability of survival, net cubic foot volume, and net board foot volume. In the absence of better forecasting techniques, this information can be utilized to project short-term changes for Indiana and Illinois trees, inventory plots, stands, or forests.
Keywords: d.b.h., growth, cubic foot volume, board foot volume, crown class, mortality
