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

It has long been known that the early performance of willow (Salix) and poplar (Populus) is very dependent on good site preparation and management, and particularly on rigorous elimination of weed competition. Given good husbandry, yield depends on interactions between the genetic material, soil...

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

Tests were carried out to investigate the effects of poplar [Populus sp.] intensive silviculture on the biodiversity of the ground vegetation, in a 13-year-old P. 'Beaupré' plantation located at Echigey, Côte d'Or, France. Various treatments were tested: herbicide application; mechanical weeding;...

Abstract

Technologies are readily available for growing hybrid poplars (Populus spp.) and willows (Salix spp.) in block plantings as short rotation woody crops (SRWC) for fuel and fibre production. This paper discusses the incorporation of SRWC species and technologies into agroforestry systems in the USA....
