Silviculture is like the caretaker of forests. It's all about managing and nurturing the trees to achieve specific goals. Think of it as the art and science of taking care of forests to ensure they thrive in the long run.
Counting the number of trees in a compartment or specific area within a forest is an integral act in forestry management and research. Tree counts help to establish an accurate forest inventory which provides valuable information about species composition, density, age structure, and overall forest health.
