The Forestry Chain

This term refers to the interdependent links or steps from collecting tree seeds to raising saplings in forestry nurseries to planting them out and getting them established, then tending them over many years until they are harvested and passed on to the various end users.

The term "wood chain" is commonly used to describe what happens to trees once they are felled and turned or converted into other wood-based products.

The main steps in the forestry chain are described here.
