Forest Restoration Techniques

Forest restoration methods:

Protection in this term referred to prevention encroachment, fire, cattle and hunting of seed dispersers.

ANR is any set of activities, short of tree planting, which enhance the natural processes of forest regeneration.

Framework Tree Species Method

The framework species method is the least intensive of the tree planting options, since it exploits natural (and free) seed dispersal mechanisms to bring about biodiversity recovery. It involves planting the fewest trees necessary to shade out weeds (i.e. site “re-capture”) and attract seed-dispersing animals.
