Propagating Framework Trees to Restore Seasonally Dry Tropical Forest in Northern Thailand


One issue of concern in native species reforestation is the lack of information on propagation and nursery practices of native seeds and seedlings.

Research Goals & Methods

This research presents data on the germination and performance of ten native species that were formerly classified as possible "framework" species to be used in reforestation in northern Thailand.

Selecting framework tree species for restoring seasonally dry tropical forests in northern Thailand based on field performance


Framework tree species are indigenous forest tree species, planted to complement and accelerate natural regeneration of forest ecosystems and encourage biodiversity recovery, on degraded sites. This study tests the extent to which 37 native forest tree species might act as framework tree species to accelerate recovery of evergreen, seasonal forest in a degraded upper watershed in Doi Suthep-Pui National Park in northern Thailand.
