Description: Upland Piedmont hardwood stands represent an important forest type in North Carolina and the Southeastern United States. Many of these forests are being converted to other land uses. A solution to maintaining these forest types lies in increasing productivity and profitability of this resource. This implies a shift from traditional, extensive management to more intensive silviculture, including pre-commercial thinning. However, there is a lack of information available to managers for assessing stocking levels and to guide decisionmaking in these upland stands. A preliminarily model for identifying full stocking is presented.
