Abstract

We compared four approaches to assess phenology in a short-rotation coppice culture with 12 poplar (Populus) genotypes. The four approaches quantified phenology at different spatial scales and with different temporal resolutions: (i) visual observations of bud phenology; (ii) measurements of leaf...

Abstract

Given the high expectations for lignocellulosic biomass as one of the potential solutions for energy security and climate change mitigation, commercial scale studies over several rotations are crucial to assess the potential and the sustainability of short rotation coppice (SRC) cultures for...

Abstract

An account is given of poplar culture in Belgium, from its probable start at the end of the 19th century and especially after the second World War.

Abstract

This article has 2 main aims: to outline the principal climatic modifications that face the forests of the Walloon region of Belgium and investigate their eventual consequences for the forest ecosystem; and to identify possible approaches to populiculture that would prepare poplar stands for the...

Abstract

Short rotation coppice cultures (SRC) are intensively managed, high-density plantations of multi-shoot trees. In April 1996, an SRC field trial with 17 different poplar clones was established in Boom (Belgium) on a former waste disposal site. In December 1996 and January 2001, all shoots were cut...

Abstract

There are about 100 000 poplar trees planted in rows in the Hainaut region in Belgium, representing 8.5% of the total area planted in poplar. The following cultivars are present: Euramerican (90% with Robusta, Serotina and Harfferpapel), Interamerican (7% with Unal, Beaupré and Boelare) and...

Abstract

Coppice cultures are characterized by a high stool and shoot density. Studies on density-dependent mortality, and intraspecific competition in crowded populations have mainly focused on non-woody species. We investigated intraspecific competition in a coppice culture of poplar (Populus spp.). A...

Abstract

The process model SECRETS was adapted to simulate coppice growth of poplar. The effects of soil type, irrigation, nitrogen fertilization and rotation cycle on growth and yield were studied. Simulated average production on an agricultural soil was 12.4 t ha-1 year-1. Poplar growth was strongly...

Abstract

During the last three decades, oil crises, agricultural surpluses and global climate change enhanced the interest in short-rotation forestry (SRF). In this study, the biomass production of birch (Betula pendula Roth), maple (Acer pseudoplatanus L. - Tintigny), poplar (Populus trichocarpa × ...
