  • Dr. James Arney developed a methodology for defining which tree growth factors are a result of good silviculture practices and which tree growth factors are a result of soil, water and other environmental factors.

Halli compared traditional height-age modeled growth rates to observed growth rates in Northern Idaho. The modeled growth rates consistently underpredicted height growth. Halli explored the accuracy of productivity predictions using 10-meter site index and a nonparametric approach. One method accurately predicted 100% of test sites and was chosen to create productivity maps of the region.
