Abstract

The ability of a mechanistic forest growth model (FORECAST) to project patterns of stand growth and dynamics in a spruce (Picea glauca)-aspen (Populus tremuloides) mixedwood forest type subjected to different silvicultural treatments is evaluated. Model output is compared against field measurements ...

Abstract

The Hayes Creek fuel reduction project in Montana, USA, was small in terms of the number of acres treated but very complex. This complexity included figuring out how to go about meeting a variety of multiple resource objectives given the values associated with a unique area. Doing fuel reduction...

AbstractFull Text

This study was conducted during 1999-2002 in Alberta, Canada, to examine the early growth of aspen [Populus] and white spruce [Picea glauca] in planted mixtures varying in species composition, and compare their productivity. Treatments include combinations of five species composition, two moisture...

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

As in many other countries the French programme on conservation of forest genetic resources was originally part of the selection a breeding programme that started in the early 1950s. Information on these collections has been published in two books (Arbez 1987 on conifers and Arbez and Lacaze 1998,...

Abstract

Surface mined land in the Appalachian coal-producing region have been found to exhibit growing conditions that are unfavourable for the establishment of productive forests including dense ground covers, compacted soil materials, and unfavourable soil chemical properties. To address these concerns,...

Abstract

A conifer release trial was established in a 45-year-old aspen (Populus tremuloides) overstorey stand in Northeast British Columbia, Canada. Thinning occurred from 0 to 100% in increments of approximately 10% to yield a total of ten units. Treatment consisted of physically cutting aspen stems at...

Abstract

Vegetative regeneration of aspen (Populus tremuloides) can be initiated through manipulations that provide hormonal stimulation, proper growth environment, and sucker protection - the three elements of the aspen regeneration triangle. The correct course of action depends upon a careful evaluation...

Abstract

The extent of change in the remnant floodplain forests along the Upper Rhine in the past 250 years surpasses that of all other forest types in central Europe. Over the years the floodplain forests have been subjected to the entire spectrum of forest management practices, including coppice forests,...
