AbstractFull Text

This study aims to present a comparison analysis of two data collection methods that can be used in order to obtain reference ground truth data for forestry - a conventional method that uses specific equipment such as Field Map system, caliper and vertex inclinometer and a modern method based on...

AbstractFull Text

Experimental results from the first thinning in mixed stands are not broadly experienced by forestry practice. To extend the experience with the thinning of a mixed stand, we studied thinned and unthinned mixtures of Norway spruce with European beech on two study sites in the Czech Republic, which...

AbstractFull Text

Norway spruce (Picea abies/L./Karst.) appears to be the most important conifer species in our mountain regions. Statistically significant differences were determined in the diameter and height increments for particular types of branching. There were verified regression functions for estimation...

AbstractFull Text

This paper analyses the dynamics of diameter structure and height curves as the main indicators of a simple stand structure, uneven-aged multi-storied fir and spruce stands in the management unit "Igman" where selective felling is applied based on the principle of positive selection. The data for...

AbstractFull Text

Development of artificial spruce stands grown under air pollution load in different stand tending regimes was studied in the Moravian-Silesian Beskids in Spruce-Beech altitudinal vegetation zones (980-1075 m a.s.l.) with the aim to check in the mountain forest the efficiency of a so-called crown...

AbstractFull Text

Large proportion of 30-50 years old spruce stands originated from overstocked plantations can be characterized by low growth potential and present serious problem to forest managers. Although according to legislation unproductive spruce stands can now be clearcut, possible alternative solution...

AbstractFull Text

Segmentation of stands by tracks is often the first phase of forest tending. However, a suitable track width is still discussed in forest practice in the Czech Republic. This article deals with the effect of track width on the growth characteristics of young spruce stands. Research involves several ...

AbstractFull Text

Structural characteristics of stands were evaluated on a data set comprising 10 plots dominated by young Silver fir and Norway spruce. Statistical tests and cluster analysis identified two major structural groupings, which were related to the stand age but not to the stand age pattern. All younger, ...
