Plant trees and honour with eKISANGYM Cards
Planting a tree is a lifelong investment. Getting your new tree off to a healthy start will help the tree mature to its full size and ensures it will provide environmental, economic, and social benefits throughout its lifetime. A plantation is not a natural ecosystem. Plantations are also sometimes known as “man-made forests” or “tree farms”, though this latter term more typically refers to specialist tree nurseries which produce the seedling trees used to create plantations.
Classification of Tree Plantations
Industrial Tree plantations
Industrial plantations are actively managed for the commercial production of forest products. Individual blocks are usually even-aged and often consist of just one or two species. These species can be exotic or indigenous. Industrial plantations are usually large-scale.
Wood production on a tree plantation is generally higher than that of natural forests. While forests managed for wood production commonly yield between 1 and 3 cubic meters per hectare per year, plantations of tropical species commonly yield between 5 and 20 cubic meters per hectare annually; A eucalyptus plantation can have growth rates of 25 cubic meter per hectare per year or higher. World wide, forest plantations now amount to less then 5 percent of total forested area, but account for 20 percent of current world wood production.
