Background information and definitions
To avoid overgrowth of the vegetation in the understorey that is typical for many selectively logged forests, this intervention involves manually controlling or removing secondary mid-storey and ground-level re-growth.
The clearing of open patches in the forest to reduce undergrowth density is discussed under ‘Clear open patches in the forest’. The removal of trees to reduce density is discussed under ‘Thin trees within forests’.
