AbstractFull Text

Currently, clonal of forest tree is gaining importance due to the yield improvement and low variability in different wood characteristics. Hybrid trees from clonal forest are importantly characterized in term of wood quality for finding suitable uses. Accordingly, three clones (HD3, K47, H4) of...

AbstractFull Text

In situ assessments of bud flushing in European larch Larix decidua Mill. clones growing under natural conditions were conducted in the Łęgajny seed orchard, Warmia-Masuria Province, Poland. The 27 assessed clones (among a total of 332 trees) were derived from superior plus trees from six selected...

AbstractFull Text

Cracks expose wood to fungal infections that significantly affects wood quality, while rapid wound occlusion decreases probability of infections. Assessment of scars was done at four grade scale in three adjacent hybrid aspen trials at the age of 8-10 years in central part of Latvia three years...

AbstractFull Text

Four clonal progenies of wild cherry obtained using an in vitro technique and control progeny of generative origin were tested on the Polná research plot in southeastern Bohemia. Growth characteristics of cherry trees were determined each year during the period 2000-2010. At the age of 15 years,...

AbstractFull Text

Climate change affects forest trees both directly through increase of temperature or decrease of precipitation and indirectly through favorizing pest outbreaks. Insects feeding causes stress in plants which can inhibit the growth or even cause drying of plants. In this paper, we investigated the...
