Title: Predicting height increment of young-growth red fir in California and southern Oregon

Author: Dolph, K. Leroy;

Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)

Description: An equation is given to estimate 10-year height increment for young-growth red fir trees in California and southern Oregon. The independent variables are the individual tree, stand, and site characteristics significantly related to a tree's height growth. Data used to develop the equation came from stem analysis of 492 trees sampled from 56 stands in the study area. Parameter estimates for the predictive equation were obtained using least-squares linear regression.

Keywords: stem analysis, increment (height), California, Oregon, red fir, California red fir, Shasta red fir
