Biomass prediction equations were constructed for twelve commercial species from sampling conducted throughout Quebec. The coniferous species studied include eastern white pine (Pinus strobus L.), red pine (Pinus resinosa Ait.), jack pine (Pinus banksiana Lamb.), balsam fir (Abies balsamea (L.) Mill.), white spruce (Picea glauca (Moench) Voss), red spruce (Picea rubens Sarg.), and tamarack (Larix laricina (Du Roi) Koch.). The deciduous species are trembling aspen (Populus tremuloides Michx.), yellow birch (Betula alleghaniensis Britt.), white birch (Betula papyrifera Marsh.), sugar maple (Acer saccharum Marsh.), and red maple (Acer rubrum L.). The equations are designed to predict the green and ovendry masses of the total above-ground tree, the stem, the merchantable stem, the wood and the bark of the merchantable stem, and the crown. The equations use the diameter at breast height and the total height as predictors.
