A viable and cost effective method
Dense natural regeneration of predominantly eucalypt nitens plantation can potentially provide an effective and viable method of re-establishing a eucalypt plantation.
See 'Management of natural regeneration in eucalypt plantations' for additional information.
Coppice refers to the frequently multi-stemmed shoots that develop from cut stumps. Because these shoots use part of the root system of the harvested tree, their initial growth rates can be considerably greater than those of seedlings.
Differing management techniques are vital to obtain the best results.
