Abstract

Aboveground biomass estimation in short-rotation forestry plantations is an essential step in the development of crop management strategies as well as allowing the economic viability of the crop to be determined prior to harvesting. Hence, it is important to develop new methodologies that improve...

Abstract

Dedicated energy crop production is seen as a path to develop local biomass sources for consumer heating needs. Nevertheless, one drawback of the novel energy crops is a more complex composition than stemwood sources been generally described as "problematic" fuels. Consequently, conversion...

Abstract

Native Populus tremula L. populations at the south-western limit of the species' range are threatened by the anthropic reduction of their habitats and by climate change. In these areas, P. tremula forms small and multiclonal populations. Knowledge of the structures and dynamics of these populations ...

Abstract

Poplar has been developed in recent decades in the region of El Bierzo as an alternative to traditional agricultural activities. Although both climate and soil are optimal for growing clones of poplar, primarily Populus × Euroamericana wood production is becoming less profitable. This paper...

Abstract

This study examined the response of three pre-emergence herbicides (thiazopyr, oxyfluorfen and pendimethalin) on unsprouted cuttings of the clone 'I-214' (Populus×euramericana) and their effect on weeds. The three herbicides performed well in terms of selectivity and effectiveness. The development...

Abstract

The mechanical quality of structural timber (50 × 150 × 3200 mm) was assessed by means of growth rates in different softwoods (Pinus radiata, P. pinaster, P. sylvestris), most of them fast grown species, and hardwoods (Populus sp. and Eucalyptus globulus) grown in Spain. The utility of using...

Abstract

A short historical review is given of the situation in 15 countries in Europe. It is concluded that the only commercial applications of short-rotation forestry to date are the Eucalyptus plantations for pulpwood production in Spain and Portugal. There are approx. 1500 ha of mostly small-scale trial ...
