Stand density or stocking during early stages of stand development has an important effect on quality and value of the timber because it influences size and distribution of knots. Openly stocked stands tend to develop large, persistent limbs which remain in the logs as knots. Large and numerous knots result in downgrading of logs, thereby lowering their value.
