Abstract

In this review, past and present research about oak species is summarized, and what is known and not known and the opportunities or priorities for future research and management to successfully manage oak development and environments from regeneration through harvest are discussed.

Abstract

This paper describes a method developed and tested to predict the soil fertility rating in the model 3-PG for loblolly pine plantations (Pinus taeda) based on the relationship between stand productivity and site index in the Southeastern United States. It is established that when site index values...

Abstract

This paper suggests that the elevated-CO2 treatment lowered the quality of bark of sweetgum (Liquidambar styraciflua) for thermochemical conversions (combustion, pyrolysis, gasification, liquefaction) by an increased mineral content coinciding with decreased carbon levels. Accordingly, while there...

AbstractFull Text

Variability in historic fire regimes in eastern North America resulted in an array of oak savannas, woodlands and forests that were dominant vegetation types throughout the region. In the past century, once abundant woodlands have become scarce due to conversion to agriculture, or development of...

Abstract

Recent advances in somatic embryogenesis permit large numbers of clonal loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) to be produced and deployed. Clones may have greater growth (mean annual increment exceeding 30 cubic meters per hectare per year), greater stand uniformity and may be more susceptible to genotype ...

Abstract

Pondberry (Lindera melissifolia (Walter) Blume) is a deciduous woody shrub in the Lauraceae that is endemic to low-lying forests in seven southeastern states. In the Mississippi Alluvial Valley, pondberry occurs in the understory of bottomland hardwood forests. This rare shrub was listed as an...

Abstract

The use of herbicides in hardwood management presents special problems in that many of the most effective herbicides are either designed to control hardwoods or the product is not labeled for such applications. Numerous studies involving herbicide application in hardwoods have been completed at...

Abstract

Upland hardwood forests dominate the Appalachian landscape. However, early successional forests are limited. In WV and PA, for example, only 8 percent of the timberland is classified as seedling and sapling-sized. Typically no management occurs in these forests due to the high cost of treatment and ...

AbstractFull Text

Determining the amount of coarse woody debris (CWD) in an urban forest is essential to developing management strategies to maintain ecosystem function while minimizing hazards to local residents. It is also an essential variable used for the assessment and monitoring of carbon dynamics and fire...
