A stocking guide was developed from the data of Putnam, et al. (1960). The form of the stocking guide follows Gingrich (1967), although the "B"-line is based on the suggested residual stocking of Putnam, et al. (1960) rather than on minimum full stocking. This stocking guide is similar to the stocking guide for central upland hardwoods constructed by Gingrich, except that 100% stocking is 5-7 ft² of basal area lower for the southern bottomland guide, across a range of quadratic mean diameter. South. J. Appl. For. 19(3):103-104.
