An Approach for Projecting Mixed-Species Forest Growth and Mortality

Steven H. Bullard



Mixed-species forests are common throughout the United States and growth and yield models are needed which reflect complex interrelationships. A stand-table projection approach with upgrowth and mortality components is presented for modeling growth and development in such forests. The method involves concepts previously used to model mixed-species diameter growth, in the upgrowth component of the projection system. Tentative equation forms are presented to help clarify the general approach.
