Airborne laser scanning (ALS) is increasingly being proposed for surveying forest attributes. The objective of this paper is to present a new approach
for the estimation of growing stock based on ALS data. The approach is distinctively developed for broadleaved stands where conventional
methods for growing stock estimation based on ALS measurements of single tree heights frequently provide poor results. Theoretical background
and model-based statistical estimators are reported.
