Abstract

Aiming to overcome the lack of knowledge about precise estimation of wood production potential of forest restoration systems, the objective of this study is modeling allometric relationships of nine tree species in alternative models of seasonal semideciduous forest restoration. The models fitted well to the data with satisfactory distribution of the residuals. The height-diameter relationship was best modeled by the Stoeffles model and the volume equations had the best fit with the Schumacher-Hall model, for many species. The equations obtained will be used in future studies of management and conservation of these plantations.
