Site Index Curves and Tables for British Columbia: Coastal Species

This field guide insert gives the height-age (site index) curves and tables recommended for use on the coast of British Columbia. Included are site curves and tables for Balsam, Douglas-fir, Sitka spruce, Western hemlock, Western redcedar, Black cottonwood, and Red alder.

The site index tables were generated from numerical iterations between the height-age curves, and thus may not give exactly the same estimates of site index as the site index functions (where available). These tables are designed for rough estimation of site index in the field, and thus are given at low resolution.

The arbitrary range of site index in the tables is 10-50 m and 15-45 m in the curves. The tables and curves are given in a common format for consistency among species and do not necessarily represent the range of site index or age used in the development of the curves. All species use top height to represent dominant height and 50 years (breast-height age) as the site index reference age. Estimates of height and site index that are beyond the range of the data used in the analyses (given in the notes section for each species) should be interpreted with caution.
