Introduction

2 Program Objectives

Planting is one of the tools available for reforesting disturbed sites. As a reforestation option, it may be used alone or in combination with natural regeneration to achieve the species and stocking levels prescribed for the site.

The objectives of this chapter are to provide the reader with some of the important background information needed to make a decision to plant a site, to complete a planting prescription, to select the species, stock type and stocking levels, to plan a planting program or project, to carry out a successful project, and to record and monitor the plantation results. Additional detail and information on the technical aspects of planting and planting contract administration may be obtained from the selected references listed in each section.
