Abstract

Specific gravity is an important consideration for traditional uses of hybrid poplars for pulp and solid wood products, as well as for biofuels and bioenergy production. While specific gravity has been shown to be under strong genetic control and subject to within-tree variability, the role of...

Abstract

Conservation of vegetation diversity has been integrated into forest management regimes as stands with high levels of diversity have been shown to possess enhanced ecological services and resilience to disturbance. Effects of intensified forest management and harvesting practices such as logging...

Abstract

The effects of apical meristem loss on the growth and development of hybrid poplar trees was investigated. This was done by clipping back either the apical meristem alone (dividing cells), or the apical meristem plus a small amount of additional stem tissue (expanding cells, <1 cm), at various...

Abstract

Interest in intensive forestry systems to produce woody fibre or "fibre farming" (FF) is increasing because of high energy costs and the risks of global warming. The FF-induced changes in soil structural properties at the microscale or aggregate level important to soil organic carbon (SOC)...

Abstract

Aspen (Populus tremuloides and P. grandidentata) provides wood products, watershed protection, and wildlife habitat for numerous game and non-game species across the northern Great Lakes region in the USA. Sustaining the productivity of these ecosystems requires maintaining soil productivity....

Abstract

Data from stands in Ottawa National Forest, western Upper Michigan, were used to develop a stand-level decision tree to assist land managers to define management objectives, evaluate the present condition of stands containing a substantial proportion of mature or overmature aspens (Populus...

Abstract

From summaries of results of species trials begun in 1978 and growth studies on harsh sites, it is concluded that black locust (Robinia pseudoacacia) will be better than hybrid poplars (Populus spp.) for energy production in Michigan. Genetic variation and possibilities for improvement are...

Abstract

To determine the effects of irrigation and coppicing on above- and below-ground growth dynamics, a plantation of Populus × euramericana cv. 'Eugenei' [P. eugenei] and Populus tristis × Populus balsamifera cv. 'Tristis 1' [P. 'Tristis No. 1'] was established in May 1984 on a level site in East...

Abstract

Field data from poplar [Populus sp.] plantations in Michigan, Washington, and Wisconsin were used to validate ECOPHYS, a whole-tree growth process model for juvenile poplar. Five clones - P. eugenei, P. tristis, P. ILL-005, P. HY 44-136 and P. HY 11-11 - representing a range of morphological,...

Abstract

Hybrid Populus × euramericana Eugenei [P. eugenei] planted on 16 windbreak sites were examined in July 1980, when the trees were aged 1-14 yr, and survival, av. diam. and ht. of dominants were recorded. Ht. growth was best on loamy sand soils, where it reached 2 m/yr on a site treated with paraquat ...
