Description: In commercial terms, trees change in three ways: by growing in diameter, growing in merchantable height, and changing in grade. So when you are marking a stand for thinning and you have to choose between two trees of the same species, you estimate what the future diameter, height, and tree grade will be for each tree if the other is cut. Then you compare the predicted changes and decide which to cut and which to leave.
