Andersson, Henrik, 1996. Taper curve functions and quality estimation for common oak (Quercus robur L.) in Sweden. Second cycle, A1E. Umeå: SLU, Dept. of Forest Resource Management



In forest management planning it is essential to be able to evaluate standing trees. For this
purpose, taper curve functions and ways to estimate quality is needed. This work presents taper
curve functions for Common Oak (Quercus robur L.) in Sweden. Data was collected in a two
phase inventory, where 100 oaks were measured before and after felling. The data was processed
by using ordinary least square regression. Also, quality probabilities for logs along the stems
were estimated conditioned a subjectively estimated butt log quality.
