  • This manual provides information on reforestation techniques to guide the site selection and implementation of tree planting projects in Cambodia.
  • It begins with a discussion of forest management, degredation, and reforestation specifically in the historical and policy context of Cambodia.
  • There are procedures identified for assessing possible sites for reforestation, including information gathering on: land tenure, level of resource disturbance, poverty rate, socioeconomic conditions, funding, etc.
  • General guidelines for planting are included for monoculture plantations, milti-species plantations, assisted natural regeneration, the framework species method, enrichment planting, and agroforestry systems.
  • The appendix includes checklists, forms, and other documents that may be useful in the field to complement this manual.
