Data were combined for seven species of conifers (Pseudotsuga menziesii, Larix occidentalis, Picea engelmannii, Pinus contorta, Abies lasiocarpa, Thuja plicata and Tsuga heterophylla) to develop binary logistic regression models for predicting the probability of.

The weight of logs and the conversion of board foot to tons are subject to much uncertainty because many variables can affect the weight of logs and the accuracy of board foot scales (Table 4).

Estimating Weight of Logs and Standing Timber. Potential increase in fire hazard as a result of timber harvesting is a concern of forest managers throughout the United States. Treating fuels can help reduce unacceptable fire hazards.

To evaluate alternative fuel treatments, managers need to know their effects on fire hazard. A decision analysis approach to estimating fire hazard in terms of expected burned area was applied to a watershed. We used data on trees from 43 prescribed fires in Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington states to model postfire tree mortality.

Data were combined for seven species of conifers to develop binary logistic regression models for predicting the probability of mortality. Books at Amazon.
