Abstract

This paper provides a brief overview of the potential place of a range of (mainly hybrid) poplars and aspen in British forestry. The paper discusses the uses of the species in specialist applications such as short rotation biomass production. Further, the following information about the species are ...

AbstractFull Text

Adapting forests to climate change involves silvicultural measures such as use of a range of species and the fostering of mixed stands. We tested these in a Sitka spruce forest in southern Scotland, employing the Ecological Site Classification to match suitability of 24 species to six climatic and...

Abstract

Upland forestry in Britain is currently dominated by two management models - (a) even-aged medium-rotation plantations of predominantly Sitka spruce (Picea sitchensis) and (b) conservation or ecological restoration of native woodland with minimal production outputs. To meet emerging objectives and...

Abstract

This article reports a short project, supported by the North Highland Forest Trust, to create an inventory of aspen (Populus tremula L.) populations in the counties of Caithness and Sutherland. This was achieved by a combination of desk review of previous surveys and a campaign of rapid field...

Abstract

There has recently been much interest in short rotation forestry (SRF) and the possibility of high levels of yield from eucalypts and other species. This paper describes the results of a 1980 experiment at four sites that examined the productivity of a range of broadleaved species and compared the...

Abstract

Silvoarable agroforestry, the integration of trees and arable crops on the same area, has the potential to offer production, ecological, and societal benefits. However, the uptake of such systems in Europe has been limited by a combination of unsupportive policies and uncertainty concerning their...

Abstract

The increased demand for renewable energy sources has led to large areas of former agricultural land being proposed for short rotation coppice (SRC) establishment. Concerns expressed over the potential impacts of tree roots on buried archaeological evidence led to a study into the rooting habit of...
