n. A list of trees and their attributes measured in a forest inventory.
When measuring individual trees for a forest inventory, a tree list can be compiled that contains the attributes of those trees. Examples of such attributes include species, diameter at breast height (DBH), height, crown ratio, and the tree expansion factor. This information about individual trees can be used to estimate current and future stand conditions. Tree lists serve as input for forest stand dynamics software packages, such as the Forest Vegetation Simulator (Dixon 2002) and Fuels Management Analyst (FMAPlus).
