A growth and management model for coniferous plantations in East Africa

Abstract:

A mathematical model is presented for growth and yield of Cupressus lusitanica, Pinus radiata and Pinus patula growing in the highlands of Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, and Malawi, based on permanent sample plot data. Stand dominant height is predicted by a log/reciprocal function of age and site Index. Initial diameter distributions are predicted by spacing at a dominant height of 7 metres and generated by a Weibull function. The diameter distribution of stems is si...
