Plantation design

The right plantation design is one that optimises the planted area, eases plantation operations and mitigates erosion, while protecting special values, access to water and other land assets.

 

One of the main considerations at design phase is the final harvest. A savvy forester will identify gravel sources and earmark them for future use, and locate compartment breaks in places where conversion to harvest roads will be easy, cheap and logical.
