Title: Taper Functions for Predicting Product Volumes in Natural Shortleaf Pines

Author: Farrar, Robert M. Jr.; Murphy, Paul A.;

Date: 1987

Source: Res. Pap. SO-234. New Orleans, LA: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Southern Forest Experiment Station. 14 p.

Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)

Description: Taper (stem-profile) functions are presented for natural shortleaf pine (Pinus echinata Mill.) trees growing in the West Gulf area. These functions, when integrated, permit the prediction of volume between any two heights on a stem and, conversely by iteration, the volume between any two diameters on a stem. Examples are given of use of the functions, and a computer program is available to evaluate the functions for cubic-foot volume equations.

Keywords: Naturally regenerated shortleaf pine, predicting product volumes, taper function model
