Quantitative characterization of clumping in Scots pine crowns
The stochastic approach of modeling tree crowns as geometric shapes filled with a random medium was tested on twelve Scots pine trees generated with the LIGNUM model. Results supported the capability of the stochastic approach in characterizing clumping in crowns given that the outer shell of the tree crown is well represented.
