By combining and modifying the Competition Density Rule of Kira et al. (1953), Reineke's concept of stand density index (Reineke 1933), and Assmann's theory of maximum basal area, a method to estimate potential density of sites has been developed. From the data of 11 thinning experiments it has been shown that the maximum stand density index, estimated in this way, is well correlated with the gross volume yield at a given height and thinning regime. Data from an inventory show that with this method of estimating and characterizing maximum stand density it is possible to evaluate differences of gross volume yield that would never have been detected if only yield tables had been used. For. Sci. 33(4):1022-1034.
