Abstract

Fire has been shown to shape successional pathways and dynamics of forest vegetation. However, its role in European hemiboreal forests remains poorly understood. Here we provide the first annually resolved reconstruction of fire history from the Eastern Baltic Sea region, developed in the...

Abstract

Climatic changes and weather extremes are causing shifts in distribution of tree species, affecting productivity of forests. With the northwards advance of deciduous species in Northern Europe, Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) is predicted to decrease survival and productivity. Nevertheless, Scots...

Abstract

The plasticity of climate-growth relationships of trees is one of the main factors determining the climate-induced changes in forest productivity and composition. In this study, high-frequency variation of tree-ring width (TRW) of four native and three alien tree species and two hybrids of Populus...

Abstract

Height growth of trees is a crucial parameter that influences the composition and productivity of forest stands and quality of timber; however, the relationships between annual height increment (HI) and climatic factors have been poorly studied. In this study, the effect of monthly mean...

Abstract

Effects of climatic factors on tree growth are usually determined by analysis of various tree-ring parameters thus focusing on secondary growth. Relationships between climatic factors and height (primary) growth of trees, which is important parameter in forestry and has been linked with geography...

Abstract

Lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta var. latifolia Dougl.) is one of the few exotic tree species that has been successfully used in forestry in Northern Europe. Considering the increasing demand for energy wood and timber, this species could be applied in plantation forestry in Latvia; however,...

Abstract

Several recent research publications devoted to dendrochronology or questions of the history of wood exports provide information on so-called Baltic wood or Riga wood. A considerable proportion of this wood was exported from the port of Riga. Although wood products were supplied from the Baltic...

Abstract

Ring width studies were made on 851 sample trees of Pinus sylvestris in Estonia, and standard chronologies were produced (21-year running mean) for various site types and geographical locations covering the period from about 1800 to 1980. A generalized Estonian chronology was produced, and compared ...

Abstract

Indices of variation of ring width were used to study the pattern of increment of Pinus sylvestris growing on mineral soils with normal moisture status in Latvia. Over the period 1892-1970, there were 31 years of abnormally great radial increment. The increments for these years were analysed in...

Abstract

A detailed study of ring-width variation in the period 1931-60, based on increment cores from >6000 trees (Scots Pine and Norway Spruce 50-100 years old, Birch 35-60 years) in different forest types. KEYWORDS: Increment \ Increment seasonal variation \ mensuration \ forests \ Picea abies ...
