Multi-block stocking standards are a way to assess whether a licenseeís stocking practices are adequate. An assessment of a population of cutblocks harvested in one year, is made 13 years after harvest. The entire population of blocks either passes or fails based on whether future yield, predicted from survey data, is similar to future yield, predicted using the stocking assumptions used in timber supply analysis. Yield is predicted using the Ministry of Forestís Tree and Stand Simulator (TASS).
