Silviculture is the art and science of controlling the establishment, growth, composition, health and quality of forests and woodlands. Silviculture entails the manipulation of forest and woodland vegetation in stands and on landscapes to meet the diverse needs and values of landowners and society.

Common methods in silviculture include regeneration, intermediate stand treatments (release treatments, thinning, and pruning) and cuttings.

A silvicultural system is a long-term (one or more rotations) programme of treatments designed to achieve certain objectives with regard to stand structure and stand composition.
