Abstract

Cuttings of Populus X robusta were planted in containers, two sides of which were of glass covered by movable sheets of fibreboard to allow a study of root development during the trials. At the end of the study one of the glass walls was replaced by a board set with nails 10 cm. long that held the...

Abstract

Describes investigations started at Hummelo, Netherlands, in 1974 on the cultivation of Poplars on very short rotations, e.g. 6-7 years. The planting stock used consisted mainly of various types of long cuttings or 1-year rooted plants of the cultivars 'Androscoggin', 'Donk', 'Barn', 'Fritzi...

Abstract

In a series of experiments in 1959-61, 2- to 4-year plants of different clones were planted on different soil types. Results showing plant survival and height growth after two years are tabulated. They suggest that holes should generally be at least 60 cm. square. On soils liable to drought, and...

Abstract

The first part discusses general considerations with reference to the cultivars commonly grown in the Netherlands. The second part considers the susceptibility of Populus X serotina to diseases and especially to crown dieback (primary cause unknown), which makes it unsuitable for general planting....

Abstract

Thirty-five % of all certified Poplar plantations in the Netherlands consist of 'Robusta' (including cvs. 'Zeeland', 'Bachelieri' and 'Vernirubens'). Its resistance to diseases and wind damage, silvicultural characteristics and wood are briefly discussed. KEYWORDS: Populus X robusta P. X'...
