Abstract

Schizoempodium mesophyllincola is an eriophyid mite that feeds in leaves of Populus trichocarpa in the central part of this cottonwood tree's range (i.e., coastal British Columbia, Washington and Oregon) in the Pacific Northwest (PNW) of North America, and on some interspecific hybrids planted in...

Abstract

The site productivity layer is a database of site indexes for commercial species, which can be linked to a particular area (a site) in the province. It was created in response to a need for improved accessibility to site index information. The site index estimates in the layer were obtained from...

Abstract

The ability of a mechanistic forest growth model (FORECAST) to project patterns of stand growth and dynamics in a spruce (Picea glauca)-aspen (Populus tremuloides) mixedwood forest type subjected to different silvicultural treatments is evaluated. Model output is compared against field measurements ...

Abstract

In southern British Columbia, juvenile trembling aspen is managed primarily as a competitor with conifers rather than for its ecological and economic value. As a result, brushing treatments have been applied on a widespread basis and this practice is likely to continue in the near future. Given the ...

Abstract

Hybrid poplar (Populus trichocarpa × Populus deltoides) plantations, at two locations in southern British Columbia, Canada, were examined 9 years after planting, to determine the effects of plantation spacing on individual-tree and per-hectare growth and development. At both locations, spacing had...

Abstract

Establishing white spruce (Picea glauca) by planting it under established aspen (Populus tremuloides), stands has substantial potential as a technique for regenerating boreal mixedwood stands. The presence of an aspen overstorey serves to ameliorate frost and winter injury problems and suppresses...

Abstract

We describe a range of approaches for managing boreal mixedwood stands composed of trembling aspen (Populus tremuloides Michx.) and white spruce (Picea glauca (Moench) Voss) in British Columbia and Alberta. Successful management of these complex forests requires a combination of well-defined...

Abstract

To facilitate ecosystem-specific management of juvenile mixtures of lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta var. latifolia) and trembling aspen (Populus tremuloides) in south-central British Columbia (Canada), we compared the characteristics of pine-aspen competition between a moist sub-boreal spruce and a...

Abstract

We examined the growth of white spruce (Picea glauca) planted underneath a 33-year-old stand of trembling aspen (Populus tremuloides), in British Columbia, Canada, following thinning and fertilizer application. Thinning the stand to 2000 stems ha-1 resulted in increased light reaching spruce...

Abstract

General information is given on hybrid poplar management in British Columbia, highlighting key areas and topics to consider when establishing a poplar plantation, including site selection, site preparation, management regime (rotations and intensive silviculture), clonal selection, vegetation...
