    Description

    Regeneration stocking equations for mixed-oak stands were developed based on data collected from nearly 14,000 plots in the central Appalachians. Maximum stand density was identified by plotting aggregate height against number of seedlings per plot, and was used as the reference level of the average maximum stand density (100 percent stocking or A-level stocking). Minimum stand density (B-level stocking) was estimated using the crown area and seedling height relationship of open-grown seedlings. Stocking equations were developed separately for plots having average seedling height below and above 9 feet. The resulting stocking equations provide an objective basis for evaluating stocking of young regeneration in the upland mixed-oak forest.
