Silviculture is the art and science of controlling the establishment, growth, composition, and quality of forest vegetation for the full range of forest resource objectives. Successful silviculture depends on clearly defined management objectives. Silviculture is also used to manage forests for wildlife, water, recreation, aesthetics, or any combination of these or other forest uses. 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. A silvicultural treatment is a planned programme of silvicultural operations that can be implemented during the entire or partial rotation of a stand.
