A single tree basal area growth model
Keywords: tree rings, heartwood, sapwood, self-pruning, partitioning
AbstractWhat is the role of the structural and circular constraints on tree growth dynamics? Simple rules about growth and self-pruning result in a 2-dimensional dynamic growth model in a framework of structural and circular constraints. The results suggest that onset and rate of self-pruning are key factors in the partitioning of dry matter between foliage and wood.
