Table 4.3: Stand Structure in the Pilot zone

table2

Remarks

Stand structure in the pilot zone is predominantly regular (plantation) at 82%, reflecting the intensively managed coniferous nature of plantation forestry in the pilot zone. Irregular or natural forests only account for 1.5% of the stand structure class in the pilot zone which is agreeable with the tree species composition (Table 4.1). Semi-regular (semi-natural) stands account for 16.5%.

Problems and improvements

Stand structure in the pilot zone is reflective of intensively managed plantation forestry. Irregular or natural forest cover is very low. The climate, exposure, soil type and topography conditions of the pilot zone make it difficult for broadleaf forestry and are more suited to coniferous plantation forestry.
