AbstractFull Text

Forest management is the legal instrument to propose interventions and conservation of tree species in natural forests; it is a requirement for the management of commercial forest plantations. Considering as objective the conservation with sustainable management and knowledge of the increment rates ...

AbstractFull Text

Damage by herbivore grazing negatively influences the development of subsequent forest generations. Little is known about the long-term impacts of grazing and interactions between grazing and light conditions on sapling growth after the cessation of herbivory impact. In this study, Taxus baccata...

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

Pruning requires significant investment, therefore, the aim of the study was to characterize occlusion of branch wounds and changes in radial increment as well as frequency of browsing damages after pruning of Norway spruce (Picea abies (L.) Karst.) in order to provide data for financial...

AbstractFull Text

The paper deals with the structural diversity and production of a less frequently studied type of alder stands originated on former agricultural lands in the 1950s, established partly by plantation and partly by natural succession in the area of the Krkonoše Mts. and the Orlické hory Mts. (Czech...

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

The paper describes the potential of producing wood biomass in short rotation tree plantations (rotation period 5, 10 and 15 years) on agricultural lands. The research is focused on managing naturally emerging grey alder (Alnus incana Moench) coppice on agricultural lands, following up its course...

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

Climate changes are expected to create favourable conditions for development and spread of diseases. Therefore, the impact of meteorological factors on needle cast damage, and relationship between degree of damage and growth of trees had been assessed in the study. Analysis was carried out in...

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...
