Abstract

This paper presents results of a study on the stand structure and some stocking control approaches of uneven-aged coniferous stands. The even-aged forest management prevails in silvicultural practices in Bulgarian forestry. Uneven-aged silviculture started in the early 1930s when the Biolley...

Abstract

We studied changes in the understory vegetation in two Danish forests (212 permanent plots in a 330 ha area) over a period of 23 years from 1993 to 2016. Changes were analyzed in relation to a shift in forest management towards close-to-nature silviculture, local natural disturbance (caused by...

Abstract

Global trends in the demand for forest products, decreasing total area of actively managed forests, and pressures to increase profit margins suggest that forest management intensity will continue to increase in the future. These trends have typically led to shorter rotation lengths and increased...

Abstract

Despite the importance of financial outcomes to stand-level forest management decision-making, long-term assessments are rare. We compared the quality and value of mixed, northern conifer (Picea-Abies-Tsuga) stands in Maine, USA, treated with a range of silvicultural systems and exploitive cuttings ...

Abstract

Species selection and composition in afforestation affect forest characteristics, which, in turn, affect the quality and quantity of ecosystem services a forest provides to society. Trade-offs and synergies among the various forest goods and services are key issues in multipurpose forest management...

Abstract

Particularly after disturbance events, the early successional colonist Betula pendula Roth is experiencing renewed silvicultural interest with respect to the natural regeneration of large disturbed forest areas. In a case study, we therefore studied the seed dispersal of B. pendula from two...

Abstract

Quantifying the impact of forest management on carbon (C) stock is important for evaluating and enhancing the ability of plantations to mitigate climate change. Near natural forest management (NNFM) through species enrichment planting in single species plantations, structural adjustment, and...

Abstract

We propose several guidelines for sustainable forest management of the main regional forest types based on literature review on silviculture and forest management and taking into account the results from surveys carried out in four test sites located in Calabria (Southern Italy) within the...

Abstract

The aim of this study is to develop a long-term forest fire occurrence probability model in the Karst forest management area of Slovenia. The target area has the greatest forest fire occurrence rates and the largest burned areas in the country. To discover how the forest stand characteristics...

Abstract

Retention forestry is thought to contribute to the balance between biological conservation and timber production . However, its efficacy has mainly been investigated in natural or naturally regenerated forests, and there have been few studies in plantations and Asia. Conifer plantations are quite...
