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

A stocking diagram for Midwestern bottomland eastern cottonwood (Populus deltoides Bartram ex Marsh.)-silver maple (Acer saccharinum L.)-American sycamore (Platanus occidentalis L.) forests was developed following the methods of S.F. Gingrich (1967. Measuring and evaluating stocking and stand...

Abstract

Information about macro- and micro-nutrient uptake and distribution into tissues of Populus irrigated with landfill leachate helps to maximize biomass production and understand impacts of leachate chemistry on tree health. We irrigated eight Populus clones (NC13460, NC14018, NC14104, NC14106,...

Abstract

A simulation model (ECOPHYS) was used to assess the growth under different climatic conditions (data of 1988 and 1992) of 2 hybrids, Populus 'Eugeni' [P. canadensis] and P. 'Tristis' (P. tristis × P. balsamifera), under short rotation intensive silviculture in Wisconsin, USA.

Abstract

The success of hybrid poplar (Populus spp.) planting programmes for short rotation forestry depends on the selection of clones with desirable growth properties, matched to specific environmental conditions. Traditionally, tree geneticists have employed early height growth as an indicator of...

Abstract

Field trials were conducted at Rhinelander to assess the efficacy of a protoporphyrinogen oxidase-inhibiting herbicide, DuPont R6447, applied pre- and post-flush at 8-24 ounces/acre, compared with sulfometuron at 0.75 ounces, for weed control in intensive poplar [Populus] hybrid plantations....

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

An account is given of trials to grow hybrid poplars (Populus spp.) as wood grass on a 40-acre tract near Menasha, Wisconsin. Paper mill sludge was tested for use in weed control, moisture conservation and nutrient supplementation. It was concluded that wood grass production is not profitable...
