Silviculture is the process of deciding the species and tree spacing most suited to the particular area and predicting the effect of operations on a variety of forest values including wildlife habitat, biodiversity and timber yield.
KVL has completed harvesting the remainder of their volume on the two licenses A77424 and A73726. Kalum Ventures has Silvicultural Obligations on areas harvested under these licenses. Compliance with these obligations is measured with two important Milestones.
