Managing Competition Between Forestry Plants

Managing Competition Between Forestry Plants

This year 12 Agriculture resource addresses the topics of

– plant competition within a forest coupe,
– the subsequent effect of competition on trees and
– how managers control competition to produce trees that meet the desired specifications.

The lesson is designed to allow students to:

– view source material to develop their understanding of competition and density within a forest, and then
– allow them to complete a series of workstations to summarise the content.

Note: This lesson has been developed for the N.S.W BOSTES Stage 6 Agriculture Syllabus but will still be applicable to use in other states.
