AbstractFull Text

Over recent years there has been increasing interest in the harvesting of forest biomass destined for energy production. However, there are a number of limitations with respect to the efficiency and profitability of such exploitations and these have implications for the future development of the...

AbstractFull Text

Cutting of superior genotypes of Pinus radiata is current in forestry. For such practice in Brazil, protocols of propagation need to be established. We evaluated the mini-cutting applied to seedling production, focusing the collection point in matrix plant, season, and minigarden. We used seminal...

AbstractFull Text

A forestry nursery in Tokoroa, New Zealand grows approximately 3 million Radiata pine seedlings per annum of which about 65% (2 million) are of suitable quality for forestry plantations. The high rejection rate of 35% was attributed to poorly trained, seasonal workers and unsophisticated equipment. ...

AbstractFull Text

Pastoral agriculture and forestry enterprises are key features of New Zealand's landscape and are very important economically. They are competing landuses, particularly on moderate to steep hill country. Agroforestry involving spaced trees of Pinus radiata on pasture was developed in the 1970s to...

AbstractFull Text

Global warming can be mitigated by carbon sequestration through forestry and agroforestry. For countries with low industrial development, carbon sequestration also represents an opportunity to fund sustainable development. In the Canary Islands, CO2 emissions are above the average for Spain, in...

AbstractFull Text

Around one million hectares have been afforested between 1994 and 1999 (ECC, 2004) due to European agro-environment policies (Regulation 2080/92) in Europe. Tree understory competition is one of the most important aspects that control tree growth after reforestation, which could be modified by the...

AbstractFull Text

Mechanised harvesting operations are common in Australia because of their increased productivity and efficiency, improved worker safety and reduced cost of operations. Most research has found that the productivity and efficiency of a mechanised harvesting system is affected by a number of factors...

AbstractFull Text

The raw material properties of wood develop as the tree grows, laying down wood cells with specific properties, and forming the stem structure that is the basis of timber quality. This development is influenced by genetic and environmental factors and forest management practices. It is desirable in ...

AbstractFull Text

Land use change, such as afforestation, has been one of the most important goals achieved in the last years at a European level. Promotion of afforestation and agroforestry systems can later affect biodiversity in either a positive or negative way. The objective of this work is to evaluate the...
