Abstract

A discrete growth model for an individual tree in a forest stand is based on simplified photosynthesis and respiration relationships. Implementation of the model also requires functions for change in live crown ratio and stems per unit area. Tree growth predictions are expressed in terms of biomass and basal area. A preliminary evaluation of the model is made using data on growth of even-aged stands of red pine Pinus resinosa. The model produced both short- and long-term trends consistent with stand growth data. -from Authors
