Description: A distance-independent, individual-tree diameter growth model was developed for managed, even-aged, upland oak stands. The 5-year basal-area growth of individual trees is first modeled as a function of dbh squared for given stands. Parameters from these models are then modeled as a function of mean stand diameter, percent stocking of the stand, and site index. A stochastic option for the overall model also was developed. Tests on data from managed stands revealed that the model performed well.
Keywords: Distance-independent, stochastic, thinning
