    5 BACkGRouND the forest industry in south australia has long been a national leader in sustainable plantation forest management. i n , the Environmental Management Guidelines for Plantation Forestry in South Australia were developed in conjunction with the forest industry, but a need to update and improve this document has been identified. Certification of forest plantation management - and therefore of the plantation logs produced for in-house processing - is seen as a key to the future of SST. It creates potential marketing and economic advantages for its forest products and, more importantly, it will help ensure that management of its resources is carried out under MTCS.

      plantation forestry should emphasis on enhancing production qualitatively and quantitatively. Addition of inorganic fertilisers to replace nutrient losses, but fertiliser efficiency to be increased. The high cost of fertilisers (estimated at 35–40% of establishment and management cost) can be reduced by their application at optimal levels.

    How global forest management shifted from an integrated conservation model to a bifurcated system of timber plantations and protected areas. Today, the world's forests are threatened by global warming, growing demand for wood products, and increasing pressure to clear tropical forests for agricultural use. Economic globalization has enabled Western corporations to export timber processing jobs.

Quite often, there are a number of roles (such as fuelwood or fodder production) which, through careful planning, can be combined to achieve multiple benefits. This section of the manual describes the techniques for the establishment and management of forest plantations.

This dooument is intended to serve as a referenoe book on some of the prinoipal methods of establishing forest plantations.

The building of more timber-rich houses and increasing the service life of wood products are considered by UK policy makers to be valuable contributions to reducing carbon impacts, and particularly in the long perspective, when the land now available for the establishment of forest plantations is exhausted and forest carbon gets stabilised.

It also describes techniques that are generally useful in tree improvement work, including individual tree selection and breeding, provenance testing, species and racial hybridization, and introduction of exotics.

Organized into 19 chapters, this volume begins with an overview of forest genetics and problems associated with forest genetics. Many authors discussed about forest nursery status to explore the status of owners and workers, marketing status, species selection, technology adoption for producing better quality of seedlings or clones and thereby enhancing the plantation programme, agroforestry programme, social forestry programme and homestead forestry [].

But there. The National Forest Plantation Development Programme (NFPDP) was launched in September to accelerate the rate of establishment of forest plantations. The NFPDP, which hitherto was largely implemented within degraded forest reserves, was re-launched in January, to expand the scope to cover private lands located outside forest reserves.

The development of plantations with a new species, such as is occurring with the endemic tree (whitewood) in Vanuatu, requires the resolution of appropriate establishment techniques.

PLANTATION ESTABLISHMENT Plantation plan Planning is an important activity in the planting programme. The planning document is needed as a reference in the planting programme from nursery to maintenance of plantation.

Planning is a common process that is done in. Forestry Plantation Much of the emphasis for a planting project is placed at the beginning with seed selection, nursery development, and outplanting.

Unfortunately, the project manager often reduces his efforts after the seedlings are in the ground. Given the high risks during this period of establishment, such reduced efforts could prove disastrous to the stand.

Germany. The main author contributes sections on: history of techniques; site. Tree-planting and plantation forestry in tropical countries are expanding rapidly. Social and community forestry, tree planting to control soil erosion, and the use of agroforestry, as well as many industrial afforestation projects, are all part of the response to tropical deforestation and are central to much rural development.

The international Tropical Forest Action Programme (TFAP Reviews: 1. The Forest Practices Code Part 3 (Plantation establishment and maintenance) is part of the overall Forest Practices Code being prepared by Forests NSW. Part 1 (Timber harvesting in State forest plantations) and Part 2 (Timber harvesting in native forests - Forests NSW and Crown-timber lands) have already been published and complement.

The Management of Industrial Forest tical Foundations and Applications answers calls from both the research and the professional communities for a synthesis of current knowledge about industrial forestry management planning processes. The emphasis of the book is thus on covering components of the forest supply chain ranging from modelling techniques to management planning.
