Having previously advocated the use of height to define maturity as a basis for legal control of cutting in young stands, the author now develops the use of height as a factor in the measurement and regulation of growing stock. An equation is offered which may prove to have value in defining upper and lower limits to normal stocking. The author will be glad to provide interested foresters with logarithmic-scale, letter-size sheets covering the range of stocking.
