In such cases, the principles and requirements are similar to those discussed here. Eventually, people began to convert the unused land into a park. These are not species for timber as much as for firewood, forage, fruit, gum, erosion control, and other such uses.

Fruit canes and bushes are also very useful, they can be planted quickly, and because they are perennials they will provide fruit over a long period of time.

The process is usually done as a large-scale project with hundreds dropped in a single area at any one time. The seeds would be encapsulated in an absorbent material.
