Abstract

Long-term sustainability of forest resources is in question given wide-spread use of conventional clear-cut silviculture. In response, variable retention (VR) harvest has been increasingly promoted as a landscape-based approach to enhance sustainability by maintaining biodiversity and other...

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

In Canada, the annual allowable cut (AAC) sets the harvest limit of roundwood and aims to maintain the long-term productive capacity of the forest while taking into account other values such as biodiversity and needs of stakeholders. Current harvest levels in the province of Quebec, which feed an...

Abstract

Partial harvesting is thought to result in more structurally diverse forest stands, providing a promising alternative to clearcutting and helping balance timber production and biodiversity conservation. Evidence for this hypothesis is based mostly on understory vegetation communities, with little...

Abstract

Plantations of fast-growing hybrid trees, such as hybrid poplars and hybrid larch, are increasingly used for wood and timber production, but they are also believed to impair forest biodiversity. Most studies that have assessed how such plantations may alter the diversity and composition of...

Abstract

Mixed-species stands present a number of opportunities for and challenges to forest managers. Boreal mixedwood stands in eastern Canada are often characterized by a dominant canopy of shade-intolerant aspen (Populus tremuloides Michx.) with more shade-tolerant conifers in the mid- to sub-canopy...

Abstract

In large areas of the boreal mixedwoods of eastern Canada, conventional forestry practices dominated by large-scale clearcutting have led to an increase in early-successional trembling aspen (Populus tremuloides Michx.) stands and a decrease in late-successional mixedwood stands. Partial harvesting ...

Abstract

There is a growing interest in fast-growing hybrid poplar and willow plantations in Canada. This interest can be explained both by the rapid growth rate and high yield potential of this type of production system. However, their establishment and maintenance require considerable investments....

Abstract

The principal objective of the study aimed at establishing formal relationships between stand growth dominance and mode of inter-tree competition for stands dominated by different tree species. We selected permanent sample plots (PSP) that were established in eastern Canada and which were dominated ...
