With planting 800 trees per acre we are already expecting there to be die off over the years, animal damage to the trees (deer, voles, and mice) as well as weather effects. Typically at first year a survival rate of mid to high 90s is expected, second year mid to high 80s and fifth year survival should level off around low 70s. If survival is low our set standards and we believe it should have been higher LCN can look into in-filling the low survival areas. This is dependent on funding sources and the site outcomes.
