  A multi-year study was conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of Florida's Best Management Practices (BMPs) for protecting aquatic ecosystems during intensive forestry operations and forest chemical applications. Five silviculture sites adjacent to stream systems were selected for study from major eco-regions of the state. Replicate stream bioassessments, using a multimetric Cited by: Vegetation Management Our expertise in this field has arisen from our experience of maintaining plantations and hedges post-planting to ensure successful establishment. As a minimum this will usually require a spot application of herbicide around each young plant to ensure reduced competition from weeds for nutrients and moisture.

Forestry Images is a joint project of The University of Georgia - Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources and College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, Center for Invasive Species and Ecosystem Health, US Forest Service, International Society of Arboriculture, USDA Identification Technology Program. Forest management is at a critical juncture. Concepts and strategies for managing forests to produce goods and services, yet maintain functioning visually pleasing forests, are being debated, developed, and implemented. A well-designed and implemented silvicultural system is basic to good forest management.

Vegetation is an assemblage of plant species and the ground cover they provide. It is a general term, without specific reference to particular taxa, life forms, structure, spatial extent, or any other specific botanical or geographic characteristics. It is broader than the term flora which refers to species composition. Perhaps the closest synonym is plant community, but vegetation can, and. interpretation of various Silvicultural Systems, Retention and Residuals, and their Forest Cover Attribute information. I.

Silvicultural treatments Tree and stand conditions change over time as trees grow in size and as they interact with other plants, animals, and ecological processes.

For example, by applying selective herbicides after planting, a desired tree species can be given a head start in growth that allows it to out compete other vegetation.

Silvicultural treatments are applied to change, accelerate change, or maintain the condition of trees and stands. For example, by applying selective herbicides after planting, a desired tree species can be given a head start in growth that allows it to out compete other vegetation.

The key to effective forest management planning is determining a silvicultural system. A silvicultural system is the collection of treatments to be applied over the life of a stand. These systems are typically described by the method of harvest and regeneration employed.

In general these systems are. Silvicultural Systems Handbook for British Columbia Part –2 Additional Reading At the end of each subsection, the handbook includes a list of references that the reader may wish to consult.

Also, throughout the text these references are identified so that the reader immediately knows where to go for more information. Outline. Silvicultural systems. The origin of forestry in German-speaking Europe has defined silvicultural systems broadly as high forest (Hochwald), coppice with standards (Mittelwald) and compound coppice, short rotation coppice, and coppice (Niederwald).There are other systems as well.

These varied silvicultural systems include several harvesting methods, which are often wrongly said to be a. The Forest Issues Working Group.

The FES was initiated (Carey and Miller ) to address development of spotted owl habitat through experimental manipulation of managed stands. Both silvicultural treatments and direct interventions to enhance biodiversity were incorporated into the experimental by: Silviculture Treatments for Ecosystem Management in the Sayward (STEMS) is a large-scale, multi-disciplinary experiment that compares forest produc-tivity, economics, and public perception of seven silvicultural regimes replicated at three sites in the Sayward Forest.

The STEMS experiment uses silvicultural systems and treatments to create. Allometric equations are useful tools for calculating tree and stand-level attributes, such as above-ground biomass or stem volume, using simple measurements that can be obtained from stand inventory data.

These equations tend to be species-specific and can be affected by site conditions and silvicultural treatments.

Forest vegetation management treatments (VM) are an important component of Cited by: 3. However, not all silvicultural treatments can be considered appropriate for these purposes and forest managers need to know the potential effects of different types of treatments on diversity in order to design environmentally sound management practices (Roberts and Gilliam, ).

Biological control can use shade of overstory trees to slow growth of competing herb and woody vegetation until the desired trees are beyond the influence of this competition. Prescribed burning can be used to kill competition.

Intensive silvicultural systems commonly include several practices including the use of genetically improved artificial regeneration, mechanical soil preparation, forest vegetation management, fertilizer application, and density management [5,6].

Research has shown the benefits of each of these practices on increasing forest growth, however the Author: Maxwell G. Wightman, Carlos A. Gonzalez-Benecke, Eric J. Dinger.

These factors include vegetation interfering with forest regeneration, poorly planned and executed timber harvesting practices, declining pulpwood markets, and increasing abundance of invasive plant species.
