      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 . The ecology of peat bogs of the glaciated northeastern United States: a community profile.

These systems offer the key to regenerating, tending, and harvesting forests in an era of rapid deforestation and increasing demand for wood as fuel and building material.

Prince George - The Ministry of Forests, Prince George Forest Region, developed several silvicultural systems trials at Aleza Lake (east of Prince George) and at Lucille Mountain (near McBride).

These trials illustrate issues in sub-boreal spruce forests and old redcedar/hemlock stands, using a range of partial cutting silvicultural systems. Silvicultural systems for the major forest types of the United States.

Decisions on silviculture in natural forests can occur at three levels: silvicultural systems; silvicultural treatment regimes; and silvicultural operations.

A silvicultural system is “the process by which the crops constituting a forest are tended, removed and replaced by new crops, resulting in the production of stands of distinctive form. Uneven-aged silvicultural systems regenerate a stand with three or more age classes.

The objective is a forest with trees of different ages or sizes intermingled, typically accomplished with some form of selection system. In these systems, mature and immature trees are felled to create or maintain uneven-aged stands.

Burn-s Technical Compiler.U.S.D.A., Forest Service. Agricultural Handbook No.p. Various forest types will respond differently to each silvicultural system. Each system will be appropriate for certain forest types and not so much for others (Table 2). A forest type is a distinct association of tree species, distributed across a wide geographical range.

For example, “northern hardwoods” is a common forest type. Typical sequence of a silvicultural system The general aim of silviculture is to ensure that most available growing space is filled with useful plants for as much of the stand's life as is practical.

"Useful plants" often include timber species, but increasingly include forage and other forest. GENERAL BOTANICAL CHARACTERISTICS: Black cherry is a deciduous, single-stemmed, medium- to large-sized tree. In the forest it typically has a large, straight, branch-free bole with a narrow crown, but in openings it tends to have a shorter trunk and a broad, irregular crown [].In the East, typical black cherry (var.

serotina) may reach feet (38 m) in height and 4 feet. For detailed discussions of silvicultural systems and terminology, please consult texts by Smith et al. () and Nyland (; reissued ).

Baker, silvicultural systems. The application of such silvicultural systems is inherently tied to In the United States, heavy exploitation of the forests began with the arrival of the first European settlers.

The vast forest reserves of the North American continent supplied EuropeanFile Size: KB. In the United States so-called "selection" cuttings have been made in various regions and types. In many cases the name is a misnomer, the character of the cutting indicating plainer than words that the selection method is not being employed.

Also, if the seed trees are left on the area for a long time period, the new stand will have two to a many age class structure. Clearly, specifying the silvicultural system for a particular stand is an important step.

Even-aged management is perhaps the simplest approach in many respects, even though it constitutes a major disturbance of the site. Forest management involves the integration of silvicultural practices and business concepts (e.g., analyzing economic alternatives) in such a way as to best achieve a landowner’s objectives.

Management of forests requires a plan (however developed), and an assessment of the activities necessary to meet the objectives. Silviculture.
