Equations are presented that predict individual-tree 5-year diameter growth, outside bark, for 14 tree species in southwest Oregon. The data used to develop the equations came from 19,245 trees sampled from 391 stands in the study area. These equations express diameter growth as a function of diameter at breast height, crown ratio, site index, total stand basal area, and stand basal area in trees with diameters larger than the subject tree's diameter. The parameters of the equations were estimated by using weighted, nonlinear regression.
