Data are presented on the dry weight per acre of tree roots and lesser vegetation in stands of 700, 1000, 1500, 2000, 3000 and 5000 stems per acre. The dry weight of tree roots, above-ground tree stand, and total tree stand all increase with increasing stand density. The weight of lesser vegetation decreases with increasing stand density, but is insignificant in proportion to the whole stand.
