Abstract

Throughout eastern North America, oaks (Quercus) are a foundational tree species, but are regenerating poorly, particularly on mesic sites. This regeneration failure has spurred development of new management practices that create heterogeneous regeneration conditions that better match oak's...

Abstract

Most research on bioenergy short rotation woody crops (SRWC) has been dedicated to the genera Populus and Salix. These species generally require relatively high-input culture, including intensive weed competition control, which increases costs and environmental externalities. Widespread native...

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to develop a method for determining optimal planting recommendations for bottomlands and riparian buffer strips within a geographic information system framework. The specific objective of this study was the development of a decision support model to generate riparian...

Abstract

Research in the two countries is concentrating on identifying the best seed sources for oak (Quercus robur and Q. petraea) and beech; introducing highly productive species that are adapted to hydromorphic soils - aspen [Populus tremula] and other poplars, cherry [Prunus avium], birch, American red...

Abstract

Species selected for silvicultural biomass farms should show rapid juvenile growth, adaptability to site conditions, ease of establishment and regeneration, and freedom from major pests and diseases. Species which meet these criteria include Alnus rubra, Eucalyptus spp., Liquidambar styraciflua,...

Abstract

Liquidambar styraciflua, Liriodendron tilupifera, Populus deltoides and Platanus occidentalis were inoculated with Diplodia gossypina in wounds made mechanically or with heat. All four tree species were susceptible to the pathogen in varying degrees. Mortality rate was greatest for L. tulipifera,...

Abstract

Mixed hardwood stands on a 4-acre bottomland site in N. Alabama were felled so as to leave 10 Liriodendron tulipifera seed-trees. Part of the site was bulldozed to expose mineral soil, part was double-disked, and part was untreated as a control. Seedfall, germination and seedling survival were...

Abstract

The results of this study differed from those of Boyce and Hasmer [cf. F.A. 25 No. 2092] in two ways. Moist storage of Liriodendron tulipifera seed at a constant temperature of 54°F. gave the most complete germination of filled seed (92.4% within 12 weeks of sowing). Storage at alternating weekly...

Abstract

Seedbed treatments were made in 17 stands to favour the establishment and growth of Liriodendron tulipifera regeneration. Results emphasize the importance of fairly large overstorey openings, preferably _ 1 acre, and of reduction in understoreys by burning, treatment with herbicide (mist-blown 2,...

Abstract

The response of Liriodendron tulipifera and Populus sp. to intensive culture, including chemical and mechanical weed control, was evaluated on bottomland sandy loam and upland silt loam in trials begun in l961. On both soils, the survival and height growth of the planted hardwoods during early...
