Abstract

The principal objective of the study aimed at establishing formal relationships between stand growth dominance and mode of inter-tree competition for stands dominated by different tree species. We selected permanent sample plots (PSP) that were established in eastern Canada and which were dominated ...

Abstract

Recently, new models of operational harvester heads that are suitable for work in deciduous forests and are able to process hooked trees or trees originated from stump shots have been designed. A mechanized harvesting method (harvester with head) is compared with conventional motor-manual...

Abstract

Nitrogen-fixing trees are often used in disturbed areas to promote soil development and to prepare the ground for more demanding tree species. However, their effect on the establishment of climax tree species has seldom been tested. We mapped the occurrence of volunteer seedlings of European beech...

Abstract

Background and Purpose: Forest cultures in continental part of Croatia are mainly based on bracken-covered areas and moors on deserted agriculture soils and pastures. Successful afforestation i.e. establishment of forest cultures depends among other things on the understanding of habitats and...

Abstract

Precommercial thinning studies were performed in eight hardwood stands in southern Sweden. Birch (Betula pendula Roth and B. pubescens Ehrh.) was the dominating tree species, but aspen (Populus tremula L.), black alder [Alnus glutinosa (L.) Gaertn.] and lime (Tilia cordata Mill.) were also present. ...

Abstract

The understorey vascular plant cover and its relations with the overstorey tree species and site properties in young silver birch and hybrid aspen plantations were studied. Understorey vegetation was similar in both plantation types in terms of species richness, diversity, sensitivity to human...

Abstract

Permanent plots in the polar-birch secondary forests in Changbai Mountain, Northeast China, were established. According to the data of the analytic trees, i. e. the species of Betula platyphylla and Populus davidiana [Populus tremula var. davidiana], the Richards equation was employed using the...

Abstract

We studied species richness, composition and coverage of the bryophyte layer in young deciduous forest plantations on abandoned agricultural lands in relation to overstory tree species (hybrid aspen or silver birch), land use history (crop field or grassland), site preparation method (whole-area...

Abstract

Soil scarification is one of the main methods for enhancing natural regeneration and it is widely used before seeding and planting as well. The aim of this research was to assess the effect of soil scarification on natural regeneration in the 11-year-old forest regeneration areas in fertile mineral ...
