    The stocked quadrat concept of classifying land according to its degree of reforesting has largely replaced the method of classifying land according to the number of seedlings or saplings per acre. However, questions are asked frequently concerning the technique of employing this method and concerning the relationship, between the stocked quadrat classes and the number of trees per acre. It is the purpose of this note to answer these questions, to define the stocked quadrat method, and to review the techniques for applying it.
