The purpose of this project was to examine the feasibility of using Free to Grow (FTG) survey plot data to develop Operational Adjustment Factor (OAF 1 a/b) values used in the TIPSY growth and yield model. A method for calculating the Percent Empty Plots (PEPs) statistic needed to calculate OAF1 is also included in this report. The use of existing FTG plot data would make the localization of OAF1 estimates significantly less expensive. It is recognized that this project only addresses the currently existing gaps/holes aspect of OAF1 (OAF 1 a/b) and does not attempt to estimate its future losses element (OAF 1 c/d).
