Managed Environment

Monocultures in forestry are generally managed less rigorously, because of economic constraints on the intensity of management that can be usefully practiced. A rigorous attempt may be made to only cultivate a single species of tree under plantation conditions. However, smaller plant species may be tolerated in the plantation if they are judged to not excessively interfere with the growth of crop trees, and the system may not be fertilized, irrigated, or otherwise managed as intensively as often occurs in agriculture.
