Biomass above ground of live trees


Dry weight (mass) of the aboveground parts of living trees and shrubs starting at 12 cm dbh. This consists of the tree parts: stemwood, branch coarse wood, brushwood/twigs and needles/leaves. The correction for bias with the sample Tarif trees may be so drastic that it results in negative values with small numbers of trees.
