Keywords: Yield models, Sitka spruce, thinning, production forecast, growth function, Richards Growth Curve, stocking density, silviculture, Picea sitchensis.
AbstractOver the past few decades the construction of yield models has progressed from the graphical through mathematical and biomathematic approach. The development of a biomathematical growth model for Sitka spruce plantations is described. It is suggested that this technique can serve as a basis for general yield model construction of plantation species in Ireland.
