Permanent Sample Plots (PSPs)
Permanent Sample Plots (PSPs) provide a unique long-term re-measurement dataset that is used to develop growth-and-yield models that support timber supply analyses and sustainable forest management decisions. In 2020 and 2021 Forestry Commission with the help of UNDP established PSPs in Hurungwe, Mbire and Muzarabani. Information and data from PSPs shall assist the organisation in monitoring forest resources in Zimbabwe.
