A plantation is a large piece of land (or water) usually in a tropical or semitropical area where one crop is intentionally planted for widespread commercial sale and usually tended by resident laborers. The crops grown include fast-growing trees (often conifers), cotton, coffee, tobacco, sugar cane, sisal, oil seeds (e.g. oil palms), rubber trees, and various fruits. Protectionist policies and natural comparative advantage have sometimes contributed to determining where plantations were located.

britishers were worried that the use of forest by local people and reckless felling of trees would destroy the forest and hence they invited german forest expert DIETRICH BRANDIS. he set up many services and enacted several acts. he set up an imperial forest research institute where scientific forestry was taught. in scientific forestry trees were planted in straight rows of same kind. forest management decided and planned when to plant which crop. all this was known as plantation
hope it will help u :)
