AbstractFull Text

Article considers results of long-term studies of birch undergrowth in subtaiga subzone and forest-steppe zone of Western Siberia, the features of silver and downy birch seed regeneration under the canopy of parent stands, on logging, burned and abandoned arable lands, and hayfields. The distance...

AbstractFull Text

Adapting forests to climate change involves silvicultural measures such as use of a range of species and the fostering of mixed stands. We tested these in a Sitka spruce forest in southern Scotland, employing the Ecological Site Classification to match suitability of 24 species to six climatic and...

Abstract

Upland forestry in Britain is currently dominated by two management models - (a) even-aged medium-rotation plantations of predominantly Sitka spruce (Picea sitchensis) and (b) conservation or ecological restoration of native woodland with minimal production outputs. To meet emerging objectives 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

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 ...

Abstract

This study analysed the cost-effectiveness of silvicultural measures that increase substrate availability for saproxylic (wood-dwelling) species. Mixed stands of Norway spruce (Picea abies L.), Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) and birch (Betula pubescens Ehrh and Betula pendula Roth) or aspen (...

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

Mixed stands are the most frequent type of stand in Nordic countries. A mixture of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) and Norway spruce (Picea abies (L.) Karst.) is the most common stand type in the region. But for most foresters and persons familiar with forestry, a mixed stand implies a conifer...

Abstract

Forests and forestry in Sweden are dominated by conifers. Silviculture using mixed or broadleaved stands is often recommended, but the degree to which broadleaves regenerate naturally needs to be clarified. The Swedish National Forest Inventory is here used for a region-wide study of broadleaved...

Abstract

A review is given of Scandinavian studies to compare yields of mixed stands of spruce (Picea abies) and birch (Betula pendula, B. pubescens) or aspen (Populus tremula) with pure stands of the same species. The silviculture of mixed stands for fuelwood production is discussed.
