Title: Site index curves for white fir in the southwestern United States developed using a guide curve method

Author: Mathiasen, Robert L.; Olsen, William K.; Edminster, Carleton B.;

Date: 2006

Source: Western journal of applied forestry. 21(2): 87-93

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Site index curves for white fir (Abies concolor) in Arizona, New Mexico, and southwestern Colorado were developed using height-age measurements and an estimated guide curve and 95% confidence intervals for individual predictions. The curves were developed using height-age data for 1,048 white firs from 263 study sites distributed across eight national forests. These site index curves can be used with standard inventory data for estimating potential site productivity for white fir in the southwestern United States.

Keywords: white fir, Abies concolor, site index, Southwest
