Silviculture

Silviculture is the practice of controlling the establishment, growth, composition, health, and quality of forests to meet diverse needs and values. Timber products produced as organic shall be produced under the basic production Standard outlined in section 4, as well as Wild Harvest production requirements in section 7.5. Requirements as outlined by an industry (and CO) recognised government and/or NGO sustainable forestry Standard for forestry management shall also be complied with prior to certification being achieved.

Certification as organic shall be achieved after a minimum of 12 months under an auditing system, with documented evidence of compliance with the Australian Certified Organic Standard for the duration of the production cycle of the products to be certified.

The full requirements of Silviculture production can be found under section 7.6 of the ACOS.
