Abstract or Summary
  • Two nonspatial approaches for modeling tree crown recession (ΔHCB) were evaluated by using 5341 observations from Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii (Mirb.) Franco). The first approach applies a static height-to-crown-base (HCB) equation at the start and end of the growth period and uses the difference in these predictions as an estimate of ΔHCB. This allometric method can be applied to species lacking ΔHCB data from permanent plots. The incremental method directly predicts ΔHCB from an equation developed from adequate permanent plot data. Two allometric and six incremental equation forms were examined. Also examined were three approaches for determining the end-of-growth-period tree and plot attributes used by the allometric method. Although the allometric method can produce unbiased estimates of ΔHCB, the best allometric equation forms explained about one-half of the variation explained by the best incremental equation form. The two best incremental equation forms were modifications of a nonlinear logistic equation form previously developed for Douglas-fir. The modifications included using measured stand age (BHA) or predicted tree growth effective age (GEA) instead of measured tree age. The best equation form used BHA, which limits its application to modeling data collected from just even-aged stands. The equation form using GEA could be applied to modeling data sets from both even- and uneven-aged stands.
