The article discusses the establishment of continuous cover forest. The similar approach to planting a single species, even-aged forest is required in creating a continuous cover forest. However, it is important to focus on choosing species best suited to the area and planting appropriately. The most efficient way to establish a cover forest is by dividing the block into more or less equal areas or coupes which will vary in size. Furthermore, successful cover forestry needs a higher standard of silviculture than that practiced with even-aged, clear fell management systems.
