Abstract

A whole-stand distribution growth and yield model was developed for Eucalyptus globulus plantations in south-eastern Australia. The model was developed and parameterised using growth measurements from permanent sample or experimental plots established within plantation estates across the Gippsland, Central Victorian and Green Triangle regions. Regional variation of stand height and basal area growth, and mortality, was statistically tested using selected base models and indicator variables. Stand-level component models were constructed for projecting the stand heights, basal areas and stockings sampled in inventories into the future. Tree-level component models were developed for estimating ..
