The diameter growth of Dahurian larch (Larix gmelini Rupr.) and white birch (Betula platyphylla Suk.) species in secondary forest of Northeast China was not only influenced by biological factors such as tree size and stand characteristics, but also significantly affected by topographic and climatic factors such as temperature and precipitation. It is necessary to consider the abiotic factors in simulating the diameter growth.
