Abstract: The paper discusses the opportunities of using small format aerial images to estimate the pine crown defoliation. Test area in eastern part of Lithuania was photographed using Canon EOS-1DsMark II digital camera, installed on-board SkyArrow ultra-light aircraft. Camera lenses were adopted to capture images corresponding to the conventional color-infrared photography. Ground sampling density of acquired images was 9 cm. Crown defoliation in the field was assessed for more than 500 trees located on 46 sample plots. 89% of field surveyed trees were identified on rectified aerial images. The individual crown defoliations were estimated using two non-parametric estimation techniques - most similar neighbor and k-nearest neighbor and small format aerial image characteristics as the auxiliary variables. The prediction root mean square errors were at two levels – around 9-11% for 170-years old trees and around 11-15% for the 65-years old trees. Accuracy of individual crown defoliation class prediction ranged from weak to moderate. Defoliation prediction root mean square errors at a sample plot level were 5.07% and 1.58% for 65-years and 170-years old stands respectively
