      Calculation of forest biomass requires the use of equations that relate the mass of a tree or it's components to physical measurements that are relatively easy to obtain. In the literature individual tree relationships have been reported that estimate aboveground biomass on individual sites (e.g. Barney and Van Cleve 1973)and over large landscape areas where many data sets are combined (Jenkins et al. 2003). The equations presented in this report represent a compilation of aboveground biomass data collected within interior Alaska over the past 40 years.
