Row Segment Stocking - A New Concept of Plantation Ssampling

The usual planting survival count yields only a figure for percent of survival. How-ever, the percent of survival does not give an accurate estimate of the surviving number of seedlings per acre. In addition to percent of survival, it is sometimes de-sirable to know the percent of stocking at a specified spacing, surviving trees per acre, spacing of trees in the row, spacing between the rows, and the location of failures. The method described here for collecting this information was first demonstrated by T. C. Croker, Jr., U.S. Forest Service, Brewton, Ala., for testing percent of stocking in furrow-seeded longleaf pine plantations. It was expanded to provide the additional infor-mation listed above, and it has been used for the last 4 years to sample the results of furrow seeding and row planting of seedlings by the author.
