The move by many countries to develop forest plantation is a key step towards conserving and managing the natural forest sustainably. Fast-growing plantation forests are broadly defined as having average growth rates starting from 10m 3 /ha/year, with short rotations from less than 6 years to around 30 years.

      Despite deforestation, the Amazon basin rainforest is the largest tropical forest in the world. In Brazil, the largest Amazon country, approximately million square kilometers, or million hectares remain. million hectares are designated indigenous reserves and 25 million hectares as sustainable development reserve and extractive reserves for rubber; all of this forest area is.

Activities that affect soil conditions and forest productivity should be evaluated within the context of both negative impacts as well as the potential for positive inputs. Harvesting of native forests on sensitive sites constitutes one end of the spectrum; intensive plantation forestry constitutes the other.

Restoring sites disturbed by industrial activity to a forested condition can ensure the continued provision of economic and ecosystem services from these areas. Impounded mine tailings are particularly challenging sites, and positive benefits of establishing trees must be balanced against risks associated with metal contamination, ongoing tailings stability, and the possibility of acid mine Cited by: 1.

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. Plantation establishment is coupled particularly with the production facilities for pulp and paper in Indonesia (Gales,Wong, ). Faced by prospects of further diminishing supplies from the natural forests, the reconstituted wood panel industry has also opted for plantation management.

This research is a component of the CIFOR network project, “Site management and productivity in tropical plantation forests”, in which common core treatments are being. Introduction. A basic principle of forest management is to maintain or increase in the productivity of the forest ecosystem. This refers to all products of the forest, including both.

• Limit plantation size to 50 ac or smaller • Establish a ratio of 1 ac of permanent opening per 20 ac of trees within plantations > 50 ac • Establish irregular plantation boundaries • Establish or preserve hardwood corridors and firebreaks -roads planted to herbaceous cover to increase diversityFile Size: 4MB.

Because well-managed plantations appear to offer prospects of both augmenting wood supplies and improving the environment, there is global recognition of the need to provide the best.

Well designed and managed plantations can relieve the strain on the planet's remaining natural forests by providing fibre for timber, paper and wood energy. As the rain forests disappear, development of planted forests in tropical countries is accelerating to satisfy the ever-growing global demands for wood products as well as to improve the local environment and livelihoods of poor people.

In 24 illustrated and fully referenced chapters, this book presents both the historical context and current developments in planting trees in the tropics.

Google ScholarCited by:   It is also possible for plantation forests, depending on the specific management practices and region, to play a role in conserving biodiversity However, for example, the multiple taxa in tropical forests in the Amazon demonstrate that plantation forests are often less diverse than natural forests Cited by: Forest plantations of single tree species may have very different ecosystem characteristics than do many native forests, and create intensive and usually simplifying interactions with soils.

These interactions may influence soil properties essential for sustained productivity, e.g. nutrient element biogeochemistry, organic matter dynamics, soil biota and dynamics of soil structure and porosity. benefits, because productivity drives key ecological processes. Sustained productivity is, arguably, the best measure that integrates the functioning of plantation forests and signals the direction of change in response to management practices.

Measures of productivity may include gross or net primary. About this book. A single reference text on all aspects of tropical tree plantation management. The authors draw on their field experience from over 40 tropical and sub-tropical countries and there is an extensive bibliography of over literature citations.

"The stewardship and use of forests and forest lands in a way, and at a rate, that maintains their biodiversity, productivity, regeneration capacity, vitality and their potential to fulfil, now and in the future, relevant ecological, economic and social functions, at local, national, and global levels, and that does not cause damage to other ecosystems.".

The Forests Handbook, written by an international team of both scientists and practitioners, presents an integrated approach to forests and forestry, applying our present understanding of forest science to management practices, as a basis for achieving sustainability.

The traditional management of Chinese fir plantations is representative of the type of management usually carried out in many other tropical and subtropical forest regions around the world. After harvesting and slash-burning the native mixed evergreen broad-leaved forests, pure plantations of fast-growing conifers were by:.

• Part A provides an introduction to water resources management and plantation forests in South Australia, outlines the strategic framework of the policy, including the goal and guiding principles, and details the science underpinning the framework and the management options available to manage the water resource impacts of plantation forests.Description: Brings together much of the recent literature on nutrient cycling due to conversion of forests to croplands, pastures, and plantation forests.

It explains why nutrients are often very critical in tropical humid ecosystems and discusses principles that can guide land managers to conserve nutrients and sustain productivity.Contemporary issues such as engaging with stakeholders and sustainable management practices in planted forests are also addressed.
