The purpose of this study was to provide improved means for estimating the contents of plantation-grown red pine in Ontario. Few available volume data are directly applicable, since they are based on measurements made in stands with a different type of developmentā€”i.e., natural stands, or plantations in other regions where growth rates may differ appreciably. Further, volumes are not generally expressed in terms most convenient for the current standards of utiliza tion in these plantations. The study was initiated in 1959 at the request of the Ontario Department of Lands and Forests, who undertook marking and felling of trees of the required sizes. The Department of Forestry made all measurements and prepared a report (Technical Note 90 (Stiell, I960)). To broaden the range of data of Technical Note No. 90, additional measure ments were made in 1961 and 1962. All data were then combined in the compila tion of the current report.
