Briefly discusses the biological and economic possibilities of short coppice rotations of Birch, Willow, Alder and, in central and southern Sweden, hybrid Poplars and Aspen, to improve the supply of pulping material. One advantage of using abandoned agricultural land for such plantations would be...

Abstract

Results of trials dating from the late 1920's to recent years with one or more provenances on each of several sites varying in soil, altitude, etc. suggest that, in this region, P. contorta var. latifolia is superior in height, diameter and volume growth to P. sylvestris, at any rate during the...

Abstract

An area of derelict Spruce woodland with intrusive Pine, Birch and Aspen, at 400 m. alt., was clear felled in 1947, part was burnt over in 1948, and the whole planted in 1949 with 2 + 1 Pine of 11 provenances at 1.5 X 1.5 m. By 1956-57 plant heights were the same, but diameters slightly larger on...

Abstract

Oak (Quercus pedunculata and Q. sessiliflora) is best planted in relatively open situations, immediately after felling and before grass has become established. Direct sowing has been successful where the soil is not grass-bound. More seed par unit area should be used for autumn sowings than spring...
