AbstractFull Text

The paper documents the mid-term changes of the soil characteristics and upper soil dynamics in the stands of introduced tree species, grand fir and Douglas-fir, on the former agricultural lands. These species were compared with Norway spruce stand and original grassland in the same site conditions ...

AbstractFull Text

The objective of this work is to evaluate the effect of alginite on the growth parameters of seedlings of Douglas-fir, Scots pine and line mixture of pedunculate oak, red oak and Norway maple (broadleaves) on former agricultural land with an unfavourable hydrophysical regime. The research plot...

AbstractFull Text

Spruces (Picea spp.) are considered to be the primary host trees of the double-spined bark beetle Ips duplicatus (Sahlberg, 1836), but occurrences on pines (Pinus spp.) are often reported. This paper documents the first recorded successful development of I. duplicatus on Douglas fir (Pseudotsuga...

AbstractFull Text

Douglas-fir is one of the most productive and economically most important conifer species in Canada and North America. The large natural range in horizontal (from British Columbia to New Mexico) and vertical (from sea level to 2800 meters above sea level) terms is the reason of existing the great...

AbstractFull Text

Monitoring growing degree days has been a useful tool to track the development of many insect pests in Christmas trees. Growers now have a range of growing degree days for Douglas-fir needle midge and spruce gall midge that should help them better determine when the adult midge is emerging. Yellow...

AbstractFull Text

The paper analyses the root system development in the artificially established stands of Douglas fir aged 10, 20, 30, 60 and 80 years on aerated soils (Cambisols) without skeleton. On these sites, the Douglas fir develops a uniform root system of substitute taproots and anchors, which has great...

AbstractFull Text

The transfer of seeds and introduction of foreign species of trees include testing of all features by means of provenance tests. Genetic potential of tree species is expressed in the new environmental conditions and implies the justification of the selection of the introduced species. One of the...

AbstractFull Text

The afforestation of agricultural lands was carried out under different site and ecological conditions, including lower and medium elevated localities. The present study documents the rapidity of accumulation of surface layers and their characteristics in stands of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris),...
