The key points from this module are:
Forest regeneration is the act of renewing tree cover by establishing young trees naturally or artificially, promptly after the previous stand or forest has been removed.
The 3 ways of forest regeneration

Natural Regeneration; which involves the re-establishment of a forest stand by natural means, i.e by natural seeding or vegetative regeneration.
Assisted Natural Regeneration; which involves the re-establishment of the secondary forest from degraded grassland and shrub vegetation by protecting and nurturing the mother trees and their wildlings.
Artificial Regeneration; which involves the renewal of forest crops by sowing, planting or other artificial methods.

The silvicultural system is a planned programme of treatments during the whole life of a forest, designed to achieve specific stand structural objectives.
Objectives of Silvicultural Systems

Meeting the goals and objectives of a working plan.
Producing predictable harvests overtime.
Balancing biological, economic and ecological concerns.
Providing for regeneration.
Efficiently utilising growing space and site productivity.
Sustaining non-market values and ecosystem services.

A Clear Felling System is a harvesting system in which all merchantable trees within a specified physical area of land are felled and no significant tree cover remains.
 
Types of clear felling systems include:


Standard clearcut
Patch clearcut
Strip clearcut
