Description: The determination of site quality is one of the early steps preceding intensive forest management; it is most commonly assessed by a total height-age relationship know as site index, with quality being expressed by the height at a chosen index age. Because an intensive review of the literature has revealed no site index curves nor yield tables for American sycamore (Platanus occidentalis) this note is being published for the benefit of those interested in this fast-growing species.
Keywords: American sycamore, Platanus occidentalis
