- 250 Downloads
Reforestation is re-establishment of forests, by natural (including human induced) process of re-occupying of land or artificially – by planting of seedlings or direct seeding on a forest land.
Reforestation is a generic term, used to define a range of processes and human activities resulting with re-establishment of forest in a specific area: from exclusively artificial establishment of forests to broader concept which include the both artificial and natural re-establishment; from restoring of species composition and stand structure to conversion of species and/or genotypes; and from immediate action to re-establishment of forest after a relative long period of time. There is a wide range of definitions used for reforestation, depending on context (operational, ecological, and economic), objectives (statistics and research), and authorities...
