A deterministic distance-independent individual tree model, called OUTENIQUA, was developed for a 44ha southern Cape mixed evergreen forest compartment where the DBH's of all trees have been measured over a 15 year period. The central growth equation from another model for mixed forest was used and parameters adjusted to cater for the southern Cape forests. The developed model was then used to highlight research needs. Some of these research questions were addressed in this study.
