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

Public media and some forestry literature offer overestimate age for large diameter trees. The dendrochronological methods, like tree ring counting, are the most accurate way to establish the real age of trees. In this paper we present and inventory of the oldest trees for the main species in...

AbstractFull Text

The objective of the transformation of spruce monocultures to close-to-nature forests is to create natural relationships between the species composition and the soil environment in a forest ecosystem. The aim of the paper is to evaluate the input of chemical substances via precipitation into forest ...

AbstractFull Text

The extreme disturbance of the forest environment in the young experimental spruce stand in the Orlické Hory Mts after the snow breakage disaster in the winter of 2005/2006 became the impulse for the present study. 98% spruce trees were affected, the stand density decreased from 1550 to 950 trees...
