**Using the Gingrich (1967) Stocking Chart for Upland Hardwood**forests in the Central States Gingrich, S. F. 1967. Measuring and evaluating stocking and stand density in Upland Hardwood forests in the Central States. Forest Science. 13:38-53.**So let’s try an example stand with a density of 200 trees**ac-1 and basal area of 90 ft2 ac-1**So let’s try an example stand with a density of 200 trees**ac-1 and basal area of 90 ft2 ac-1**So let’s try an example stand with a density of 200 trees**ac-1 and basal area of 90 ft2 ac-1**So let’s try an example stand with a density of 200 trees**ac-1 and basal area of 90 ft2 ac-1**So let’s try an example stand with a density of 200 trees**ac-1 and basal area of 90 ft2 ac-1**Determine the percent stocking for a stand with a a density**of 150 trees ac-1 and basal area of 115 ft2 ac-1 Answer: 95% Stocking 95**What is the maximum amount of basal area that can be removed**without resulting in an understocked stand? To determine this, we must know: Stand’s current basal area Basal area at B-Line stocking for the given stand’s average tree diameter**What is the maximum amount of basal area that can be removed**without resulting in an understocked stand? To determine this, we must know: Stand’s current basal area Basal area at B-Line stocking for the given stand’s average tree diameter We already know the stand’s current basal area is 90 ft2 ac-1**What is the maximum amount of basal area that can be removed**without resulting in an understocked stand? To determine this, we must know: Stand’s current basal area Basal area at B-Line stocking for the given stand’s average tree diameter We already know the stand’s current basal area is 90 ft2 ac-1 We determine the basal area at B-Line stocking for the given stand’s average tree diameter by using the stocking chart.**What is the maximum amount of basal area that can be removed**without resulting in an understocked stand?**What is the maximum amount of basal area that can be removed**without resulting in an understocked stand?**What is the maximum amount of basal area that can be removed**without resulting in an understocked stand? Basal area at B-Line stocking is ~ 65 ft2 ac-1**What is the maximum amount of basal area that can be removed**without resulting in an understocked stand? This is equal to: current stand basal area - basal area at B-Line stocking So, maximum amount of basal area that can be removed without resulting in an understocked stand is = 90 ft2 ac-1 – 65 ft2 ac-1 = 25 ft2 ac-1**Class Exercise:**Determine the percent stocking for a stand with a density of 150 trees ac-1 and basal area of 115 ft2 ac-1**Determine the percent stocking for a stand with a a density**of 150 trees ac-1 and basal area of 115 ft2 ac-1 Answer: 95% Stocking 95**Class Exercise:**What is the maximum amount of basal area that can be removed without resulting in an understocked stand? 95**Class Exercise:**What is the maximum amount of basal area that can be removed without resulting in an understocked stand? Basal area at B-Line stocking is ~ 71 ft2 ac-1**What is the maximum amount of basal area that can be removed**without resulting in an understocked stand? This is equal to: current stand basal area - basal area at B-Line stocking So, maximum amount of basal area that can be removed without resulting in an understocked stand is = 115 ft2 ac-1 – 71 ft2 ac-1 = 44 ft2 ac-1
