For example, Lophodermium pinastri causes needle cast problems for Pinus sylvestris (Scots pine) in nurseries and in young (2– 5-year-old) high-density plantations. Highlighting the name of the disease and selecting a ‘soft link’ button brings information about the disease onto the screen. This often includes maps showing the countries where it has been observed. Where available, control methods for important pests and diseases are described within each tree species description. 5 Matching Species and Sites The CABI Forestry Compendium can be very helpful in assisting the process of species choice, but there are other useful tools and critical considerations.

A mechanical excavator may be used for ground preparation in areas with heavy slash where stump and debris removal should be done prior to any plant establishment operation. Appropriate operations for ground preparation depend on soil physic features, relief, water regime, and previous management. Field conditions requiring ground preparation are related to dense grass cover, detrimental field disturbance, compaction, heavy bulky soils, waterlogging, or dryness. Analysis of these conditions allows definition of needs for clearing, land reclamation, soil cultivation, drainage, or water harvesting.
