The internal components and structure of a stand growth simulator for even-aged natural stands of longleaf pine are described. The system allows stand-and-stock table estimates for both thinned and unthinned stands. It is based on 20-yr records from a permanent-plot regional growth study. The system consists of two parts: (1) a three-parameter, Weibull-recovery system to simulate stand development up to the first thinning and (2) a parameter-free, least-squares adjustment, dbh-distribution recovery system to simulate stand development after thinning. These techniques seem to handle nonsmooth distributions, such as those often left after thinning, very well. Copies of IBM-PC-compatible software for implementation of the prediction system can be obtained by writing to the junior author. South. J. Appl. For. 18(4): 147-155.
