Managing Site Resources for Fast-growing Plantations: Experiences from Chile

Dr. Jose Alvarez Munoz, Candidate for Adjunct Faculty and Manager of Remote Sensing Systems, Weyerhaeuser

Introduced by Zakiya Leggett.

Enrolled students are in FOR 801, FOR 601 and NR 601.

Abstract: Pinus radiata and Eucalyptus spp. plantations represent the majority of the forest resources in Chile. Both species were introduced more than 100 years ago and today are part of the natural landscape. To improve productivity and wood quality, private companies, government and research organizations initiated an aggressive program during late -80s and has being maintained since then. The effects of such research has been impressive, and systematically transferred as well. We presented a synthesis of R&D experiences in Chile, from establishment activities to the use of process-based models to predict the effect of soil and climate conditions on forest productivity. These successful experiences represent an opportunity for similar countries around the World, supporting better decisions and avoiding unnecessary expenses.
