Variability of diameters of trees is considered in connection with density change of pine plantings with the age of 12 to 30 years. It has been revealed that there is a decrease in the maximum and average diameters due to increase in density in a limited range of density, which decreases with increasing age. Variability of average heights on all variants of experience in different years remains almost constant. There is essentially a smaller variability in artificial forest stands in comparison with natural stands.
