Hardwood Silviculture Plot Maps

For over fifty years the forestry division of Paul Smith's College has required its students to complete a dynamic and rigorous course in silviculture, the art and science of controlling forest structure, composition establishment and growth. Known commonly as "Silvi", skills developed from Silviculture 132 may be considered one of the foundation blocks of any branch of forest operations and management.

  • This page shows a map of the plots as they were laid out in 1980.
