Description: A-growth and yield model has been developed for slash pine plantations on problem-free cutover sites in the west gulf region. The model was based on the moment-percentile method using the Weibull distribution for tree diameters. This technique was applied to untbinned and thinned stand projections and, subsequently, to the prediction of residual stands immediately after thinning.
Keywords: Parameter recovery, Pinuselliottii Engelm. var. elliottii, size distribution, survival prediction, volume prediction, Weibull distribution.
