Six commercial species were sampled throughout Quebec and prediction equations of ovendry masses for the total above-ground tree and its components were constructed. The coniferous species are: eastern white cedar and eastern hemlock. The deciduous species are: red maple, white ash, black ash, and beech. The components expressed in ovendry masses are: the total tree, the stem, the merchantable stem, the wood and bark of the merchantable stem, and the crown. A nonlinear model is used with the diameter at breast height and the total height as predictors.
