Description: Black cherry site index curves were developed for the Allegheny Plateau in northwestern Pennsylvania. They show for this region that height rises less sharply prior to the index age and is maintained for a longer period thereafter than described by existing curves. An equation to predict site index from height and age is furnished to allow the use of these curves in computer processing. For field use, a table of site indexes by 2-foot heights and 2-year ages is provided.
Keywords: Prunus serotina; site index curves; height growth
