A deterministic growth model for uneven-aged monospecific stands of cypress pine is presented. It is implemented as a cohort model and comprises equations to (1) predict stand basal area increment, (2) distribute stand increment among component trees, (3) estimate potential diameter increment to check for excessive distributed increments, (4) predict mortality, and (5) predict regeneration.
