Trend Towards Normality of Stocking for Second Growth Loblolly Pine Stands
Abstract:Whereas normal yield tables are accepted as the basis for predicting yields in even-aged forests their use often leads to incorrect results. They presuppose a stationary normality of stocking, a condition which does not prevail in nature, as proven by several writers. The purpose of this paper is to develop the theory that second-growth stands of loblolly pine have a measurable trend towards normality of stocking, with increasing age. The theory is developed from data of temporary sample plots and upheld by data from permanent sample plots.
