Abstract

Growth and woody biomass production of three Populus species (Populus nigra clone Jean Pourtet, P. alba clone 2AS-11 and P. × euramericana [P. canadensis] clone I-214), were followed during the first growing season after coppice of a short rotation coppice culture exposed to elevated atmospheric CO...

Abstract

An economic evaluation of a short rotation forestry (SRF) poplar plantation in Northern Italy was conducted. Poplar growth in a plantation for the production of two-year whips in Western Po Valley was observed considering SRF duration of 8 years and a biomass (20 tonnes/ha) harvest every two years. ...

Abstract

Hybrid poplar plantations are one of the most important sources of timber and wood fibres in Italy and represent a significant alternative as sustainable use of agricultural land. Effective management of such plantations requires adequate growth and yield models. In light of this, the paper...

Abstract

A brief description is presented of various types of forest in this pre-Alpine area of NE Italy, and the close-to-nature silvicultural treatments planned. The stands range from submontane and montane beech (Fagus sylvatica) forests, old cultivated chestnut (Castanea sativa) stands or stools, shrub...

Abstract

The environmental impact of electric power production through an Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC) fired by dedicated energy crops (poplar [Populus sp.] Short Rotation Forestry (SRF)) is analysed by a Life Cycle Assessment approach. The results are compared with the alternative option...

Abstract

Photosynthetic capacity was assessed in coppices of three poplar clones (Populus alba genotype 2AS11, P. euramericana [P. canadensis] genotype I-214 and Pinus nigra genotype) growing in the POPFACE/EUROFACE free-air CO2 enrichment experiment in central Italy. Plants were grown either at an elevated ...

Abstract

A study was conducted to evaluate the use of a highly mechanized machinery, the Timberjack 1270 B harvester, in biomass harvesting along a small river canal (the Roglio) located near Forcoli, Pisa, Tuscany, Italy. The main purpose of cleaning riverbeds is to maintain the steady flow of meteoric...

Abstract

High-density short-rotation poplar (Populus sp.) plantations are a large potential biomass energy resource in Italy. These energy crops also have great environmental benefits in comparison with fossil fuels, particularly when used for direct combustion. The author gives a short account of the...

Abstract

Site preparation - deep ploughing to 70- to 100-cm depth or more, or superficial ploughing to 30- to 40-cm deep - is necessary to obtain satisfactory establishment of poplar [Populus sp.] in plantations. A short account is given of other ground preparation or cultivation techniques associated with...
