Abstract: 

In this study, some forest biometric parameters were studied to evaluate the decline severity in Tang-e Solak forest area in Kohgiluyeh and Boyerahmad province. Hundred plots of one hectare each were used. The Fierke method was used to evaluate the decline severity. In this method, crown condition classes (CCC) and Basal Emergence hole Classes (BEC) are divided into 6 groups. Finally Rapid Estimation Index (REI) was calculated by aggregating CCC and BEC. REI was then classified into tree classes for determining the dieback severity. The result of this study showed that 86% of broadleaved trees are in weak severity, while only 14% include medium severity of decline.
