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

After abandoning the silvicultural system coppice-with-standards in the year 1950, the crown of standards developed gradually under the growing influence of their competitors. This study examines the crowns of remnant oak standards in two forest types, in riparian forest in lowland along big river...

Abstract

This study measured changes in forest composition that have occurred since the preindustrial era along the toposequence of the Gatineau River Valley, Quebec, Canada (5650 km2), based on survey records prior to colonization (1804-1864) and recent forest inventories (1982-2006). Changes in forest...

Abstract

In order to clarify carbon storage changes for major forest types in Beijing, this research used the national forest inventory data surveyed by the State Forestry Administration of China to estimate biomass and carbon storage of forest ecosystems during a 5 year period for Beijing. Regression...

Abstract

The rapid re-establishment of forests following large disturbances is being seen as one option to increase the contribution of forests to climate change mitigation. The temporary inclusion of pioneer trees as nurse crops on disturbed sites can facilitate the establishment of target tree species and ...

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

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

Hydraulic conductance of stem and petioles increased in response to an increase in xylem sap ion concentration, and decreased in response to a decrease in the ion concentration in six temperate deciduous tree species. The ion sensitivity of hydraulic conductance of stem and petioles was higher than ...

Abstract

Wood ash has been identified as an alternative chemical fertilizer to increase soil fertility and crop production in sustainable farming. This experiment has investigated the effects of wood ash on forest production. The higher dose wood ash treatment has increased the dry matter accumulation and...

Abstract

Objective: In this paper, the effects of close-to-natural thinning on ground vegetation and tree regeneration of Quercus wutaishanica forest were studied. This would provide reference for cutting operation and management after felling. Method: We conducted investigation on plots of Q. wutaishanica...
