Abstract

Long-term sustainability of forest resources is in question given wide-spread use of conventional clear-cut silviculture. In response, variable retention (VR) harvest has been increasingly promoted as a landscape-based approach to enhance sustainability by maintaining biodiversity and other...

Abstract

Planting white spruce (Picea glauca (Moench) Voss) under established aspen (Populus tremuloides Michx.) stands has substantial potential for regenerating mixedwood ecosystems in the western Canadian boreal forest. The presence of an aspen overstory serves to ameliorate frost and winter injury...

Abstract

Plantations of fast-growing hybrid trees, such as hybrid poplars and hybrid larch, are increasingly used for wood and timber production, but they are also believed to impair forest biodiversity. Most studies that have assessed how such plantations may alter the diversity and composition of...

Abstract

Background and Aims: Abandoned lands are increasingly used to establish fast-growing tree plantations, and are often rapidly colonized by a high density of herbaceous undergrowth. These weeds are generally removed since they compete with trees for resources, in particular soil nutrients. However,...

Abstract

Mixed-species stands present a number of opportunities for and challenges to forest managers. Boreal mixedwood stands in eastern Canada are often characterized by a dominant canopy of shade-intolerant aspen (Populus tremuloides Michx.) with more shade-tolerant conifers in the mid- to sub-canopy...

Abstract

The analytic trees for 924 firs (Abies fabri), 844 spruces (Picea asperata), 183 birchs (Betula platphylla), 158 aspens (Populus davidiana) and 227 larchs (Larix olgensis) were selected to establish the models of diameter growth for dominant tree species in the Changbai Mountain. The study was...

Abstract

Radial patterns of modulus of elasticity (MOE) were examined for white spruce (Picea glauca (Moench) Voss) and trembling aspen (Populus tremuoides Michx.) from 19 mature, uneven-aged stands in the boreal mixedwood region of northern Alberta, Canada. The main objectives were to (1) evaluate the...

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

Post-harvest regeneration failure of white spruce (Picea glauca Moench [Voss]), has led to concerns of "de-coniferization" on productive site in the Alaskan boreal forest. Forest management in the region sought historically to increase spruce composition after harvest through silvicultural...

Abstract

The stand initiation stage decisively influences future forest structure and composition, particularly in the boreal forest which is a stand replacement disturbance driven system. In boreal Alaska, the conventional forest management paradigm has focused on the production of large-dimension timber,...
