Silvicultural Accessory Systems

Silviculture system characterised by erratic felling or two-storeyed high forests.

a) Two Storied High Forest:

Silviculture system that leads to the establishment of a two-story forest with certain goals

1) Soil preservation

2) To boost the number of desirable species in wet deciduous and semi-evergreen forests.

3) For the propagation of species that can’t be grown in the open.


1) Soil preservation

2) Increasing output by cultivating two crops on the same plot of land

3) Tender regenerated plants are protected.

4) To progressively modify the species

5) To ensure that the species makeup is vertically mixed.

6) To get a head start on the competition

Disadvantages of Two Storied High Forest:

1) Planting in the ground is a difficult process.

2) Damages to the understorey caused by the felling of the top one

3) The growth of the upper storey may be affected by the understorey crop.

b) High Forest with Reserves System:

Silviculture system in which chosen trees from the regenerating crop are kept for part or all of the second cycle to produce large-sized wood.

c) Improvement Felling:

As a treatment strategy, it entails removing inferior growing stock in order to promote better growth and the more valuable individuals. It’s often used in mixed, unevenly aged woods.

Trees that are dead, dying, or sick are cut down. Unsaleable unsound over mature tree removal, improperly shaped or unsound tree felling are all examples of unsound tree felling. removing fallen trees from busy areas, Climber cuts, removal of unattractive undergrowth/inferior trees.
