Re-cultivation is the exploitation of land for economic purposes, such as plantations or agriculture. Soil preparation is a common feature of this process.
It involves a range of different applications and terms. In many cases, site clearance refers to secondary vegetation and for construction clearance. This may involve forest clearance for areas intended for use such as wind farms, parks, road construction or golf courses.
Infrastructure measures are any measures that are used to build and maintain infrastructures. Among other things, those include complete or selective clearing or land management in preparation for infrastructure construction work.
The plantation industry involves a variety of applications, such as forestry plantations with eucalyptus, pines and similar, to Christmas trees and short rotation plantations, oil palm and fruit plantations such as pineapple, bananas, apples, etc.
Access routes are created to transport harvested timber from the forest to the respective loading areas. These tracks are usually unpaved roads which are maintained or kept available for long periods for accessing forest stands.
Line maintenance involves keeping electricity and overhead cables, underground cables, pipelines and railway lines clear. The areas which need to be kept clear are often difficult to access.
In general, the problem starts with a few "weak" trees that are infested by pests. Over time, the infestation spreads and the damage grows. For this reason, selected trees should be removed from the forest as quickly as possible.
