Abstract

Investments in poplar plantations in the Po valley (Northern Italy), the most important segment of timber production for the Italian forest-based sector, are undergoing a decline since more than two decades. The investment level is influenced by both economic variables directly related to the...

Abstract

The environmental impact of timber production from poplar plantation was evaluated by means of Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) using an attributional approach. A comparison was performed between a baseline scenario and an alternative one in which different harvesting operations were identified. An...

Abstract

An update of the main insect pests causing significant damage to poplar plantations in Italy is here provided. The recent introduction of a few highly dangerous invasive alien pests as well as the increasing importance of secondary pests infesting poplar trees physiologically stressed by climate...

Abstract

Populus nigra L. (black poplar) possesses amphistomatic leaves, with large (giant) and normal sized stomata. The role of giant stomata in leaf development, and the consequences on stomatal density in adult leaves remains elusive. This paper describes the characteristics of ordinary and giant...

Abstract

The sustainability of bioenergy coppice plantations is strongly affected by the Nitrogen (N) balance, whose removal is very high due to the frequent harvest of large quantities of biomass composed of small-sized shoots. Poplar bioenergy coppice plantations could have a Nitrogen removal comparable...

Abstract

Short Rotation Forestry (SRF) plantations are estimated around 7 000 hectares in Italy, mostly established in northern regions. Recently thousands hectares of SRF were established in central and southern regions of Italy also (especially in Latium and Molise) due to the promising introduction of...

Abstract

After harvesting and extracting poplar trees, the agricultural land should be restored for further cultivation by removing the root systems. This operation is done with extraction or stumps grinding using special machines. In Italy, the stumps grinding is actually the operation more practiced. This ...

Abstract

Poplar is a suitable species for phytoremediation, able to tolerate high concentrations of heavy metals (HMs). Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) form symbiotic associations with the roots of most land plants; they improve nutrient uptake and enhance phytoextraction of HMs while alleviating stress...

Abstract

Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) has become a common and standardized methodology to evaluate the environmental profiles of forest systems. In this study twelve different European forest systems dedicated to wood production for industrial or energy uses (maritime pine, spruce, willow, poplar and...
