Description: Equations are presented for estimating site index from periodic height growth in natural, even-aged stands of white pine in the Southern Appalachians. Site index can be estimated from height growth during both 3-year and 5-year periods, beginning with the year in which breast height was reached. In stands less than 15 years old, estimates of site index from 5-year intercepts are more precise than estimates from 3-year intercepts and are as precise as estimates from polymorphic site-index curves.
