Leaf-area index (LAI, the projected total surface area of foliage per unit ground area) of an old-growth Douglas-fir stand in western Oregon was estimated from litterfall, light interception, sapwood cross-sectional area, and tree diameter. Estimates made by the first three techniques were similar, but the estimate based on tree diameter was twice as high as the others. For large trees with variable amounts of live crown, estimates of leaf area based on tree diameter appear to be inaccurate… CONTINUE READING
