Seven models for predicting crown diameter using diameter at breast height were tested for Picea orientalis L. (Link.) in Artvin. Data were obtained from 4208 trees measured on 117 temporary sample plots. Sample plots were grouped into categories with 20 year mean age class intervals. Similarly, sample plots were grouped into categories based on mean tree diameter at breast height (2 cm diameter class interval). Mean diameter at breast height and mean crown diameter of sample plots in age class were analyzed statistically. One linear and six non-linear diameters at breast height-crown diameter functions were selected as candidate functions to model diameters at breast height -crown diameter relationship. Regression analysis showed that there were statistically significant (P > 0.05) and strong (R2 > 0.80) relationship between diameter at breast height and crown diameter variables in P. orientalis. The results of the study indicated that the diameter at breast height-crown diameter relationship can be described by cubic, compound, growth or exponential model because of the same R2 values. But the cubic model gave the best result for relationship between diameter at breast height and crown diameter.

The change of diameter increment percentage in even- aged and pure oriental spruce (Picea orientalis (L.) Link.) stands by age and diameter classes Trees of diameter increment are known to vary according to the time and the site quality. In this study, we investigated instead of diameter increment for its proportionate percentage of the diameter increment by diameter ...
Estimating diameter at breast height (DBH) from diameter at stump height (DST) in triple mixed stands in the region of Artvin in Turkey Diameter at breast height is used as an independent variable in the calculation of most tree or stand parameters because it can be measured easily and has high correlation with tree variables. But, it is necessary to estimate ...
