Planting and stand tending are studied in so far as they support basic silviculture practices and the successful establishment of a forest. Silviculture prescriptions (site plans) will be outlined and milestone surveys will be completed. Students will be able to establish silviculture survey plots and determine basic free growing outcomes to a provincial standard. Standards of due diligence and ethical practice will be emphasized.
