Site-species matching is very important in managing the various limiting site and climatic factors in the more temperate forestry areas in South Africa. Information has been gathered from ICFR site-species interaction trials and provenance / progeny trials and summarised into a format which should make the siting of species on low productivity sites a more informed process, and will ultimately assist the forest industry in achieving optimum growth performance on all sites, with the least risk of crop failure.
