In eastern, central, and southern Africa, where miombo woodland is the principal vegetation type, only few studies of this nature have been conducted and tools for accurate estimation of forest volume and biomass and for carbon accounting purposes are generally lacking [10-12].
This was done by applying local, forest-specific regression models relating stump diameter to dbh and total tree height in combination with Malimbwi et al.'s (1994) volume function for miombo woodland.
 used to estimate forest biomass because the equation used to estimate carbon in Miombo woodland. The allometric equation that was used was Biomass = 0.0625[D.sup.2'553], where biomass is tree biomass (kg/ha) and D is tree diameter at breast height (cm).
