Girth, Height and Volume for Black Cherry Trees

Description

This data set provides measurements of the girth, height and volume of timber in 31 felled black cherry trees. Note that girth is the diameter of the tree (in inches) measured at 4 ft 6 in above the ground.

Usage

trees

Format

A data frame with 31 observations on 3 variables.

[,1] Girth numeric Tree diameter in inches
[,2] Height numeric Height in ft
[,3] Volume numeric Volume of timber in cubic ft

Examples

require(stats); require(graphics)
pairs(trees, panel = panel.smooth, main = "trees data")
plot(Volume ~ Girth, data = trees, log = "xy")
coplot(log(Volume) ~ log(Girth) | Height, data = trees,
       panel = panel.smooth)
summary(fm1 <- lm(log(Volume) ~ log(Girth), data = trees))
summary(fm2 <- update(fm1, ~ . + log(Height), data = trees))
step(fm2)
## i.e., Volume ~= c * Height * Girth^2  seems reasonable
