Abstract

A discussion on a long-term joint programme being organized in W. Germany to study the possibilities and limits of this kind of intensive silviculture. Some 80 clones or varieties of poplar, aspen, and willow are to be tested at 4 sites, one of which, in Bavaria, has already been established....

Abstract

Intensive cultivation of fast growing tree species in short rotations for energy and industrial use can be an attractive land use on farmland to combat agricultural surplus production and safeguard the survival of agricultural enterprises in West Germany. From 1976 to 1986, seventeen test plots...

Abstract

Details are given of a trial started in spring 1983 near Regensburg (S. Germany) with Populus 'Astria', P. 'Muhle-Larsen', P. 'Rap', and Salix viminalis clone 722/51. At the end of the first 5-year rotation (in January 1988), the poplars averaged 7-8 m top height but the willow only 5 m. Biomass...

Abstract

A review. Topics discussed include: silvicultural and harvesting techniques; intensive silviculture of Populus balsamifera, P. trichocarpa and hybrids; operational economics; consequences for agriculture; and wood utilization (for fuel, pulping, panels, etc.). The need is stressed for detailed...

Abstract

Results are presented of a project carried out in Hesse and Lower Saxony in 1982-87 on the growing of poplars and willows on short rotations to produce biomass for fuel or gas production, or chips, pulp, etc. The clones used were Populus 'Rap', P. 'Max 5', P. 'Muhle Larsen' and P. 'Androscoggin',...

Abstract

An account of approx. 30 years' silvicultural experience in this region of Bavaria in the use of aspens [Populus section Leuce], balsam poplars [P. section Tacamahaca] and black poplar [P. section Aigeiros] hybrids, with conclusions regarding site selection, choice of species/clone etc.

Abstract

A general survey of the development of poplar growing and poplar research in N. Germany since 1945. Although the genus Populus has served as a model for forest tree breeding research, it is suggested that practical application of research results must be intensified. The market position of solid...

Abstract

An evaluation of intensive poplar silviculture trials at 14 sites in W. Germany, based on 6-yr results extrapolated over a 15-yr total rotation (with coppicing at intervals of ≤5 yr). In part 1, an analysis is made of timber yields, and costs of site preparation, planting stock, planting, tending...

Abstract

A stochastic simulation model ('MONTE') for the establishment of short-rotation energy plantations (of poplar in W. Germany) is described. The model is designed to indicate whether proposed projects will meet the economic requirements of fuelwood producers (based on min. price obtainable) and...

Abstract

A report on poplar silviculture as practised in this region of Hesse since 1964. Rotations of 40 yr are planned for Populus balsamifera and 50-60 yr for aspen. Poplars have been used to replace windthrown areas in Norway spruce stands, in gaps and strips in or adjacent to beech stands, in strips...
