Preparing an area of land for planting, direct seeding, or natural reproduction by clearing, chemical vegetation control, manual vegetation control, burning, disking, bedding, windrowing, raking, or combination of these treatments.
The physical preparation of a site ready for commencement of construction, such as simply establishing access, or its preparation prior to the main construction with a major effort such as reducing the topography to a common level. [D03276] RMW
Any scheduled operation that is used to prepare an area for the re-generation of trees. These operations can be used individually or together, as needed, to prepare a site for tree regeneration. Examples include: piling unusable woody debris or slash. burning excess leftover branches and limbs. disking the ground bedding or furrowing applying forest chemicals Note: Site Prep should not be confused with land clearing operations, in which all material is scraped off the ground down to the bare dirt and stumps removed to allow for a conversion of use to non-forestry purposes
The process of making a piece of land suitable for a specific use. This can include soil treatment, removing trees or grading land. Transfer of development rights: Usually means a governmentally mandated development procedure dictating density to specific locations. Transfer of development rights restricts an owner of real property to sell or exchange the development rights associated with his property to another owner for application to another property. In other words, selling development rights for one property to increase density elsewhere.
A mechanical, fire, chemical or hand treatment that modifies the site to provide favourable conditions for natural or artificial regeneration. In the context of this reporting function, this definition is restricted to cases where site preparation is a treatment designed to create suitable sites for planting or seeding. (SITEP)
The preparation of land for planting trees, setting tree seeds, or seeding-in from adjacent trees. The objectives include reduction of brush and other obstacles to allow planting equipment to operate, reduction of vegetation that would compete with young trees, scarification of the soil to provide a suitable seedbed, and/or any other action that may be required to facilitate afforestation or reforestation.
