Silviculture operations include a broad range of forest activities that focus mainly on effective reforesting of harvested areas. In this course we cover the basics of soils, trees, and machinery, but intend to discuss the skills and science needed to prescribe which methods will lead to the desired outcomes under various site conditions. The goal is to have reliable, cost-effective decision-making that fits within the total forest management system. Material presented here is directed at people charged with deciding how to best reforest the harvested area and those charged with carrying out reforestation and reclamation activities.
