Species of Trees in the Area
Where the trees are located
The Spruce trees are the most common trees in the forest, and most of them are found in this area. You can find smaller Spruces in the north-west, and bigger Spruces in the south-east.
The Oak trees are scattered all around the forest, but most of them are found in this area.
The Pine trees are found in this general area and there's also more of them to the south and south-west.
Beech trees in this forest are found most abundantly here, but they are also found in several more places throughout the forest.
There are few White Birch trees found in this forest, and they are all scattered about, but most are in this area. More are found at the southern edge of the forest, and some more are found near the beech trees.
About the Forest
What are Forest Management Practices?
Forestry Management Practices
To help the trees grow stronger I would clear the lower insignificant trees to make room for the oaks and bigger trees to grow, and also to help them get the nutrients they need. I would do my best to keep the forest healthy, by getting rid of weeds and things that would put the trees in danger.
To help the wildlife I would remove some trees that looked like they could fall over soon. I would also remove trees that looked like, if they were to fall over, they would endanger other parts of the forest. This would make it so that the wildlife has a safe environment to live in.
For aesthetic appeal I would most likely clear some trees if some trees look too cluttered in an area, or if there were dead trees that fell over. I would also trim some trees and plants, so that there would be a cleaner look to the forest and I would also just do my best to keep all of the trees healthy, so that they don't look gross.
