Forest Restoration Research Unit
This document shows how the framework species method of forest restoration has been successfully adapted to re-establish natural forest ecosystems in northern Thailand. It presents background information that enables readers to understand the natural mechanisms of forest regeneration, as well as practical techniques to harness and accelerate them. Richly illustrated with easy-to-follow diagrams, this book provides scientifically tested advice on how to select appropriate tree species, how to grow them in nurseries, and how to plant and take care of them in deforested areas.
