The mean ratio of height to diameter at breast height of dominant trees in a stand resulted in more accurate one-entry volume tables than general two-entry tables. These parametrical one-entry volume tables were established with the allometric model and Hummel's line. The values of their coefficients were estimated from stem analysis data of felled trees in black spruce stands at Lebel-sur-Quévillon. In the search for simple and effective methods to increase the reliability of standing stock estimation for managing a relatively homogeneous forest region, parametrical one-entry volume tables reduce the cost of estimating standing volume and increase the accuracy of volume estimation compared with general two-entry volume tables.
