Abstract

Three taper functions were fitted to tree section data of 12 Saskatchewan timber species to provide a means for estimating individual tree volume in the provincial timber inventory in Saskatchewan, Canada. The fitted functions performances were evaluated in terms of bias, standard error of estimate of volume, and log assortment estimation. The three functions differed in quality of results.
