Development of single tree volume models and stem profile models (TREEMODEL)
COFORD IrelandUniversity College Dublin, Ireland
This project implemented in Ireland set itself the objective of developing a model of standing stock grading which would provide the user with a flexible and accurate possibility of practical forestry use. The concrete stock of work was as follows:
- to create a standing stock grading model for Sitka spruce, Norway spruce, (lodgepole pine), Japanese larch, Scots pine and ash;
- to verify these models by way of the newly collected data;
- to describe various data collection inventory tools necessary for obtaining the standing stock grading models;
- to recommend a method for integrating these models into forestry practices and planning.
