What is Arboriculture?
Forest Science is broadly divided into two streams:
- Arboriculture is the science of individual tree care and management.
It is also commonly used synonymously with the term 'Urban Forestry'. It is in
particular skewed towards urban amenity and environmental forestry.
- Silviculture is the science of large scale forest plantation management.
It is essentially concerned with economic forestry for timber and fibre production.
