The development of an even-aged stand during the sapling stage is expressed as a theoretical stochastic model referred to as the compound exponential process. Given a suitable estimate of the one parameter of the process, we can predict the probabilities and expectations of future numbers of trees by diameter classes. The process appears to have interesting applications to the problem of evaluating the future stocking of regeneration or sapling stands. Forest Sci. 16: 177-180.
