1. (Canada) A qualitative expression of the adequacy of tree cover on an area in terms of crown closure, number of trees, basal area or volume in relation to a pre-established norm.

2. (Canada-BC) A measure of the area occupied by trees, usually measured in terms of well- spaced trees per hectare, or basal area per hectare, relative to an optimum or desired level.

3. (Russian Federation)- Degree of a denseness of growing of trees in a tree stand describing a share of use by them of taken space. Usually under definition of stocking (polnota) understands a relative polnota of a tree stand - ratio of the sum of areas of cross-cuts of all trees of a tree stand at height of 1.3 meters (breast-height) on 1 ha to the sum of areas of cross-cuts of a normal tree stand (with a polnota 1,0), i.e. tree stand with optimum for the given species and types of forest growing conditions the sum of areas of cross-cuts, which undertakes from the tables of growth. .

4. A relative number of trees or volume per acre. A forest stand is most often described as being well-stocked, poorly stocked or overstocked.

5. The amount of live trees on a given area in relation to what is considered the optimum. [Source: USDA Forest Service General Technical Report WO-44. Forest Stand Density and Stocking: concepts, terms, and use of the stocking guides. 8 p.]

6. The sum of areas of cross-cuts of all trees of a tree stand at height of 1.3 meters (breast-height) on 1 ha' is basal area. [From: "Maksym Polyakov"  mpoliak@pcomp.usau.kiev.ua   Date: Wed, 17 Jun 1998 11:20:37 +0300 (MSD)]
