Abstract

Biomass prediction equations for black spruce (Picea mariana (Mill.) BSP) were developed from field sampling carried out in three regions of Quebec: Level-sur-Quévillon, Chibougamau, and Baie-Comeau. Two series of equations are presented for predicting the green and ovendry masses of the total above-ground tree, stem, merchantable stem, wood and bark of the merchantable stem, unmerchantable stem, and crown. The first set of equations uses diameter at breast height and total height as predictors, while the second series uses only diameter at breast height.
