Plant a mixture of tree species to enhance the survival and growth of planted trees
Overall effectiveness category No evidence found (no assessment)
Number of studies: 0
Background information and definitions
Competition within species is generally stronger than competition between species (Connel 1983). Therefore, planting multiple tree species together may reduce the competition between planted seedlings and increase overall seedling survival.
