A large number of factors determine the successful establishment of trees. The site for a tree refers to where it grows, and includes living and nonliving factors that may have an impact on the tree's survival and growth. Site factors may be similar enough over a large area so as to be considered one site or different enough to be considered different sites. Variation within a site, such as different degrees of flooding, different soil types, slopes, aspects, and existing vegetation, may require that areas be treated as a number of smaller sites (Allen et al. 2001). Each of these may have specific levels of suitability and require different site preparation for different tree species.
