The Approach of Northern Hardwood Stands to Normality
Abstract:Ordinarily, when a normal yield table is applied to an understocked stand, the density of the stand is assumed to remain constant. This is largely done for simplicity because conditions do not warrant greater accuracy, but primarily because a satisfactory method was not available for correcting for the approach to normality. The author furnishes a method for adapting, to American conditions, an empirical method devised by a German forester, and shows how it is applied to uneven-aged stands of northern hardwoods.
