Sample size is tabulated for the number of tree heights needed to site-classify plots growing natural, Atlantic coastal plain loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.). The size of the sample depends on observed stand age and selected site-class size, index age, and classification success rate. The most important outcome is the relationship of sample size to stand age because putting it into practice results in uniformly reliable site-index estimates.
