  • For example, silvicultural practices often try to simulate the natural disturbance regime of a particular forest type.

  • However, Canadian forest land managers are considering how to deal with climate change effects with specifically adapted silvicultural techniques for maintaining forest health, managing declining stands, regenerating disturbed areas with desired genotypes and species, and assisting in species migration [13].

  • Some of this is due to lack of ecological and silvicultural understanding about the roles of fire in various forest types, but lack of public acceptance is a serious constraint.

  • Public agencies need to recognize that they have a unique opportunity to provide leadership in managing old growth, managing older forests on public lands, and demonstrating silvicultural techniques.

    Beyond Old Growth~ Chapter 8

  • Various silvicultural systems have been devised to harvest a stand (or selected trees) at lowest cost and with minimal damage, to ensure restocking of the site, to help trees grow rapidly, to favor particular species, and to protect biodiversity.


  • Some resistance is due to lack of ecological and silvicultural understanding about the roles of fire in various forest types.

    Beyond Old Growth~ Chapter 5

  • Forest structure and biodiversity are maintained by low-impact disturbance at short intervals, combined with silvicultural practices, matching the circumstances of the smallholders (small management area, limited labour availability and investment) with appropriate management techniques (short cutting cycles, low intensity harvesting and animal traction).

    Global Environment Outlook (GEO-4)~ Chapter 3

  • Appropriate agricultural and silvicultural methods must be used and applied in these areas.

  • Other control measures included stringent silvicultural interventions, such as thinnings, and a continuous monitoring programme, Hendricks said.
