The Approach of Loblolly and Virginia Pine Stands Toward Normal Stocking
Abstract:"What difference does it make?" This question has often been asked by foresters, armed with normal-yield tables, confronted with the problem of predicting growth for nonnormal stands. Recognizing the fact that understocked stands tend to increase in stocking, but lacking the information necessary to adjust the growth estimates, foresters have generally disregarded changes in stocking caused by approach toward normality. This paper indicates that the failure to account for such changes may lead to serious errors in growth predictions obtained through the nse of yield tables.
