Abstract

The concept of silviculture wood production from forest for energy or energy-industry can be implemented with a number of tree species. In addition to birch, alder and aspen, balsam and black poplars are also included. With regards to their growth potential at sub-optimal sites, there are a few...

Abstract

The increasing cultivation of energy crops in the last few years may have an impact on changes in the environment, biodiversity and the landscape. Due to a longer rest of soil and reduced application of pesticides, perennial crops such as short rotation coppice (SRC) offer benefits that can have a...

Abstract

In 2008, remarkably thickened wounds on one-year-old shoots of Poplar were found in two areas of short rotation plantations for energy wood. The wounds have curled the shoots completely or partly, but did not cause death. They are suspected of being infested by Cimbicid sawflies, but so far no...

Abstract

This article describes the relevance of Quercus robur in the buildup of the Upper Rhine hardwood forests from the point of view of nature convervancy. Since 1985 there had been a change of poplar forest into hardwood forest in an area of 87,5 ha in the nature reserve Kühkopf-Knoblochsaue. The...

Abstract

Apart from the extreme southern part, Sweden lies within the boreal climatic zone. Silviculture there is limited by low temperatures, and annual yields are low. This, with the high cost of labour, favoured the development of highly mechanized forest harvesting, e.g., large clear fellings. Recent...

Abstract

An analysis of the historical development shows that the composition of tree species in the floodplain forest in Leipzig was defined by natural and anthropogenic factors for many centuries. Quercus robur was the most important timber and the basis for the extraction of tanning agent and big fatting ...

Abstract

Silvicultural aspects of aspen [Populus tremula] in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany, are described. Aspen (0.35% of stocking area) was sporadically found in almost any mixed stand with nutrient-rich soils.

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,...

Abstract

On the floodplain subjected to periodic flooding along the Upper Rhine attempts to establish pedunculate oak through natural regeneration and seeding have been unsuccessful. Pedunculate oak could only be introduced through the cautious planting of tall seedlings. Even then the loss of seedlings may ...

Abstract

Investigations were made of the site characteristics and vegetation of poplar plantations on low mires in the Oberspreewald, part of the biosphere reserve Spreewald in Brandenburg, NE Germany. The Salix cinerea-Populus euramericana [P. canadensis] and the Calamagrostis canescens-Populus canadensis...
