Measuring dbh is much easier and is subject to less measurement error than total tree height. However, predicted heights only reflect the average height for trees of a particular diameter. In this study, we present a set of height-diameter equations for 13 riparian tree species using data obtained from bottomland hardwood forests along the Mississippi, Missouri, Illinois, and Des Moines rivers. Nonlinear regression techniques were used to develop the equations. The resulting equations provide a reasonable means of predicting unknown tree heights, given dbh, for these species.https://nrs.fs.fed.us/pubs/jrnl/jrnl_colbert001.pdf 102 KBhttps://www.fs.usda.gov/treesearch/pubs/11791117910Northern Journal of Applied Forestry. 19(4): 171-176.0194171-176T0Colbert, Kenneth C.; Larsen, David R.; Lootens, James R.; 09-AUG-2011 06:39:53AY09-AUG-2011 06:39:46Colbert, Kenneth C.001Larsen, David R.002Lootens, James R.NRS11lootens-white436103Colbert, Kenneth C.001Larsen, David R.002Lootens, James R.NRSCSD61lootens-white436103This article was written and prepared by U.S. Government employees on official time, and is therefore in the public domain.
