DescriptionThe challenge for a silviculturist is the creation of a seedling microsite that is favorable enough for the seedling to not only survive, but thrive. The silviculturist must do this without irrigation, heat, glass, plastic, or daily monitoring and management. The silviculturist does this by understanding the needs of the forest seedlings and the shortcomings of the reforestation site and by using management techniques to bring them closer together.
