Abstract

Retention harvesting, an approach that intentionally retains legacy features such as mature overstory trees, provides options for achieving ecological objectives. At the same time, retained overstory trees may compete with the nearby recovering understory for resources, and much remains to be...

Abstract

In May 2010, alley cropping systems consisting of switchgrass (Panicum virgatum L.), prairie cordgrass (Spartina pectinata Bosc ex Link), an alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.) and intermediate wheatgrass (Thinopyrum intermedium [Host] Barkworth and Dewey) mixture, and a native tallgrass-forb-legume...

Abstract

A reserve tree method (RTM) of harvesting was installed in six 65- to 75-year-old aspen (Populus tremuloides and P. grandidentata)-dominated stands in Minnesota, USA, to determine if retaining 10 to 15 dominant aspen/acre would decrease sucker density to facilitate restoration of a conifer...

Abstract

Soil C under other land uses such as rowcrops or pasture has usually been reduced from native, undisturbed levels. Highly productive woody crops will add substantial C to soil, both above and below ground. In addition, within 2-3 years after plantation establishment, mulching with leaf litter and...

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

Spring and autumn applications of sulfometuron (Oust) were compared in 4 trials in existing hybrid poplar [Populus spp.] plantations in Wisconsin and Minnesota. Application of 70 g/ha of sulfometuron when the poplars were completely dormant provided season-long weed control and increased poplar...

Abstract

A description is given of a network of short-rotation Populus research and demonstration plantations that has been established across 5 states, mainly in Minnesota and Wisconsin, with some in Iowa, North Dakota and South Dakota. The project aims to identify suitable hybrid clones for large-scale...

Abstract

Biomass yield and tree survival data are summarized for plantations of 13 clones of hybrid poplars (Populus spp.) halfway through an expected 10-yr rotation on sites in Wisconsin, Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota.

Abstract

Aspen demand has increased recently in the Great Lakes region in the USA. Since the species (Populus tremuloides and Populus grandidentata) have been used in the region since the late 1800s, its growing stock has increased so as to change the forest industry of region. Intensive timber harvesting...

Abstract

Hybrid poplar [Populus spp.] plantations were established in 1986-88 at 9 sites across Minnesota, Wisconsin, North Dakota and South Dakota. Greater than expected early yields were obtained. Potential yields and uncertainties in the estimates are discussed.
