Silviculture

Silviculture is the art and science for establishing and maintaining communities of trees and other vegetation that have value to people. The regulations are intended to ensure that silviculture treatments are conducted in a manner consistent with the maintenance of healthy ecosystems, diversity of forest resources and good stewardship.

Silviculture is addressed in timber harvest planning at the site plan level. The regeneration of tree species after harvest is one of the primary considerations when developing the site plan. If there is an approved FRMP in place, the regeneration plan has to be consistent with the contents of the FRMP.
