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...

Abstract

Shortage of oil, large variations in exports from Russia of wood to Europe, plenty of abandoned agriculture land, new ideas about a more intensive silviculture; these circumstances are driving forces in Sweden for planting fast-growing poplar and hybrid aspen clones on suitable land. The advantage...

Abstract

Precommercial thinning studies were performed in eight hardwood stands in southern Sweden. Birch (Betula pendula Roth and B. pubescens Ehrh.) was the dominating tree species, but aspen (Populus tremula L.), black alder [Alnus glutinosa (L.) Gaertn.] and lime (Tilia cordata Mill.) were also present. ...

Abstract

This study analysed the cost-effectiveness of silvicultural measures that increase substrate availability for saproxylic (wood-dwelling) species. Mixed stands of Norway spruce (Picea abies L.), Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) and birch (Betula pubescens Ehrh and Betula pendula Roth) or aspen (...

Abstract

A management regime that combines early harvests and conventional forestry techniques is proposed for hardwood stands in northern environments and is illustrated by the potential use of hybrid aspen (Populus tremuloides × P. tremula). The high early biomass production rates of hardwoods could be...

Abstract

Apart from the extreme southern part, Sweden lies within the boreal climatic zone. Silviculture there is limited by low temperatures, and annual yields are low. This, with the high cost of labour, favoured the development of highly mechanized forest harvesting, e.g., large clear fellings. Recent...

Abstract

Energy forest is interesting because of its renewability, vigorous growth, coppicing property, high yields, environment friendly and broad adaptability. In this paper, energy forest was mainly divided into three categories according to its market orientation: (1) oil energy forest, including ...

Abstract

A review of information is presented on the 6 most-common broadleaved genera in Sweden: birch (Betula spp.), aspen (Populus spp.), alder (Alnus spp.), oak (Quercus spp.), beech (Fagus sylvatica) and ash (Fraxinus excelsior). Hardwoods account for just over 15% of the total growing stock in the...

Abstract

Mixed stands are the most frequent type of stand in Nordic countries. A mixture of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) and Norway spruce (Picea abies (L.) Karst.) is the most common stand type in the region. But for most foresters and persons familiar with forestry, a mixed stand implies a conifer...
