Net growth (NGtotal) is defined here as net total biomass growth (tC ha−1 yr−1) without continuous losses of foliage, branch, or root biomass as the tree grows.
Mean annual increment (MAIu) of commercial timber with >7 cm diameter at the smaller end. Increment in set aside areas is not considered.
§ This refers to the managed part of the stand only, disregarding any included measure for biodiversity in FMA 2.
