    Description

    A simple procedure for evaluating the diameter growth of young stands in relation to potential growth is described. A comparison technique is developed which contrasts relative diameter of crop trees to the relative diameter growth of the last decade to show the condition and trend of growth in the stand. The method is objective, easy to use, and has several applications such as: (1) determining relative growth performance of trees and stands, (2) confirming the need for thinning and setting of priority among stands, and (3) determining the growth impact of disease and other growth depressing agents. The technique does not replace more complex, precise methods of growth study.
