Abstract

Describes methods of cultivation designed to achieve an adequate supply of 1-year-old rooted cuttings to be used as stools for further vegetative propagation for Poplar cultivation in Hungary. KEYWORDS: nurseries \ forest nurseries \ Populus \ silviculture \ poplars \ Populus \ hybrids \ commercial ...

Abstract

Describes a deep ploughing method in which plants ca. 100 cm. high are set against an 80-cm. plough slice and covered (to a depth of 80 cm.) by the next slice, at half the cost of pit planting. This has proved successful for Poplars and Robinia (root systems shown); Pines are under trial. KEYWORDS: ...

Abstract

Describes in detail (3-page Russian and German summaries), with scale drawings, graphs and tables, the specifications, power requirement and performance of the Szolnoki, VPN-2, Gyori and VON ploughs, used for lifting large plants, e.g. rooted Poplar cuttings. The first two were best as regards...

Abstract

Transplants suffered 50-60% damage, by Saperda populnea in 1959, whereas cuttings suffered very little, and the latter are now preferred. Planting Poplars in mixture is a mistake, as otherwise resistant varieties get infected with Melampsora populi, though canker is generally absent. KEYWORDS:...

Abstract

Economic Poplar stands of the State forests in the Danube flood-plain cover 3522 ha. Working-plan reports give, for the average site class, a rotation of 40 years for the highest value increment. Stand improvement by thinning is economic so long as the volume of principal fellings is encroached...

Abstract

Gives soil properties and growth-data tables. A relatively high pulpwood production is possible in 10-15 years on these soils, and Poplar is considered a better economic proposition than the Pedunculate Oak hitherto favoured. As, however, this can be proved only by long and difficult trials, an...

Abstract

Contains tabulated statistics of area and yield by species and their values. Ca. 1/2 of the forest area is suitable for Poplars; these provide the greatest volume and value yields, which could be still further increased. Improvements in Willow cultivation lie in breeding, the abolition of the...

Abstract

It was found that keeping properties improved and germination was relatively higher (70-80%) if the moisture content of seed was held at 5-8%. After a pilot trial with a hair-drier playing through a drum, a larger-scale operation showed that a fan blowing through a cylinder 20 cm. long X 50 cm....

Abstract

This county, with the best soils in Hungary, contains only 1-1% of its forests, but important additional timber production is possible. Only 35% of the area devoted to fast growing species carries Poplars, a figure which should be raised to 55-60%. The opportunities are tabulated. It should be...

Abstract

Discusses the introductory work done in 1948-58 on forest typology, age-class distribution, seed production, etc. in the 1114 seed stands (Pines 3313, Oaks 2883, Robinia 738, Poplars 68 ha.) demarcated in the 32 Hungarian State Forests, and also with the 2281 individual seed-trees of these species...
