Re: Douglas Fir Lumber - old growth vs. second growth Its was a long time ago, but I do most distinctly recall the material was supposed to air dried top quality, believe me there were a lot of phone calls on just how long it had been dried and what the story behind the cert sticker on the stuff exactly meant.

"May " Gives equations for estimating diameters at breast height of second-growth Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii (Mirb.). Knowledge of tree heights is important for classifying sites, projecting growth and yield and estimating stand volume.

Tree height is expensive and time consuming to measure so samples should be taken in the most efficient way possible. The impact of different sample designs and sizes on the fitting of height-diameter equations and subsequent prediction of volume is.

Franco) from measured stump diameters over bark and stump heights, based on measurements at 22 locations in western Oregon and WashingtonPages: The greatest gain in Douglas-fir growth from increasing the area of control was observed between the m(2) and the m(2) treatments.

The volume breeding values for BC Douglas-fir selective breeding program are an estimate of a tree's genetic worth, and reflect the expected increase in volume at age 60 (rotation age) when. Aim of study: The classical method for estimating a height-diameter model is based on the Least Squares Method (LSM) and the fit of a regression Bayesian method has an exclusive advantage, compared with the classical method, in that the parameters to be estimated are considered as random : Elias Milios, Kyriaki Kitikidou, Elias Pipinis, Athanasios Stampoulidis, Melina Gotsi.

Burkhart, Margarida Tomé. Compatible taper and volume equations give identical estimates of total volume of trees. Two basically opposite techniques for the construction of compatible systems of estimating tree taper (decrease in diameter with increase in height) and volume were derived and examined statistically.

Biomass amounts predicted by generalized models are often not applicable for small regions. Localized allometric models were developed relating tree/biomass components to diameter at breast height (dbh) for coast redwood (Sequoia sempervirens (D. Don) Endl.) from an industrial timberland in northwestern California, USA.

Compatibility of a volume-taper equation system is generally defined to mean that volumes determined by integrating the taper curve from groundline to total tree height are algebraically identical to those obtained from the total volume or appropriate volume ratio equations.

Progress 10/01/08 to 09/30/09 Outputs OUTPUTS: A series of Douglas-fir test sites were established this past year to test the idea of moving seed sources in response to climate change and evaluate options for adapting to climate change through assisted migration, using silvicultural and genetic options.

Abstract: In the frame of the ALFORLAB project, a harmonised set of tree volume (and biomass) single entry tables (“tariffs”) was developed for the main 20 forest species of Calabria (Southern Italy), to outline the “coordinates” of volume expression for inventory purposes at both regional and forest planning level.

Maximum heights. The tallest tree in the world is a coast redwood (Sequoia sempervirens) growing in Northern California that has been named Septemberit was measured at meters ( feet) tall.

There are 7 other coastal redwoods known to be over meters ( feet) in height, and specimens over meters ( feet). The fresh mass, dry mass and fresh volume of each sapwood core were used to calculate ρ b, m c and the true value of k using the equations supplied by Burgess et al.

Sapwood cross-sectional area (m 2) of treetops was determined using measurements of trunk diameter, bark depth and sapwood depth at each HRM probeset location (Table 1).Cited by:   The theory of tree water flow proposed in Aumann & Ford (submitted) is assessed by numerically solving the model developed from this theory under a variety of functional parameterizations.

The unknown functions in this nonlinear partial differential equation model are determined using a tracheid-level model of water flow in a block of Douglas fir tracheids.

Twenty years later he was still at work on his book when a remarkable coincidence forced him to publish. In he received a manuscript from an English collector in the East Indies, Alfred.

Douglas-Fir Douglas-fir (Pseu‑ dotsuga menziesii) is also known locally as red-fir, Douglas-spruce, and yellow-fir. Its range extends from the Rocky Mountains to the Pacific Coast and from Mexico to central British Columbia.

Sapwood of Douglas-fir is narrow in old-growth trees but may be as much as 7 cm (3 in.) wide in second-growth. Lange () reported lumber from old-growth timber weighed 20 percent less than lumber from second-growth timber; therefore, adjustments would have to be made for the type of timber.
