Silviculture is the art and science of controlling the establishment, growth, composition, health, and quality of forests to meet diverse needs and values of landowners and society. This course will focus on silvicultural systems and practices used on commercially important forest and stand types in the United States and worldwide. Artificial and naturally regenerated silvicultural systems will be covered. We will survey silviculture as practiced in boreal, temperate, sub-tropical and tropical regions.
