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

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

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...

AbstractFull Text

Considering the geographical position and the conditions where Forest District "Iuliu Moldovan" is located, the forests will be more and more affected by climate changes. Situated in the Mures river floodplan (99%) the Forest tree species composition depends on the climate mainly on precipitation...

Abstract

To clarify interactions between stomatal responses to two simultaneous environmental changes, the rates of change in stomatal conductance were measured after simultaneously changing two environmental factors from the set of air humidity, leaf water potential (hydraulic environmental factors), air...

Abstract

This article describes the relevance of Quercus robur in the buildup of the Upper Rhine hardwood forests from the point of view of nature convervancy. Since 1985 there had been a change of poplar forest into hardwood forest in an area of 87,5 ha in the nature reserve Kühkopf-Knoblochsaue. The...
