Implementing the biomass pools and allocation parameters required for tree growth is relatively straight-forward.
However, it is not clear to me if it will be necessary to account for any changes in growth form and physiology (e.g. allocation, allometry) associated with coppice management.
Are there any models that explicitly model coppice regrowth? Are there any particular issues that I should consider?
