Th e accurate estimation of tree biomass is crucial for the effi cient management of forest resources. In this study, we used a subsampling method for unbiased estimates of above-ground tree biomass. Th e method consists of 2 stages: the fi rst stage consists of randomized branch sampling (RBS) and the second stage uses importance sampling (IS). RBS is used to select a path from the butt of an object branch to a terminal segment. IS is used for selecting a disk that produces unbiased estimates… CONTINUE READING
