Description: Coefficients for five taper/volume models are developed for 18 Appalachian hardwood species. Each model can be used to estimate diameter at any point on the bole, height to any preselected diameter, and cubic-foot volume between any two points on the bole. The resulting equations were tested on six sets of independent data and an evaluation of these tests is included, A wide variety of volume tables can be constructed with the models; some examples are given.
Keywords: Taper, tree volume, hardwoods
