How to plant on "normal" sites has been described in the previous chapter, but the technique described has to be adapted to local conditions. It is always wise to consider local experience and to learn from previous mistakes and successes. Often the sites chosen for reforestation are those not suitable for agriculture - the difficult sites. They will require extra care.
