Short summary
Annual variations in wood density partially compensated ring-width variations in Picea abies. If neglected, annual biomass increment was underestimated by up to 15%. The relative prediction interval of plot-level annual biomass increment ranged from 20 to 40%. The uncertainty related to the allometric models parameters was only about 10%. The errors related to variations in wood density were much larger, the biggest component being the variability between trees.
