Abstract

This paper provides a brief overview of the potential place of a range of (mainly hybrid) poplars and aspen in British forestry. The paper discusses the uses of the species in specialist applications such as short rotation biomass production. Further, the following information about the species are ...

Abstract

Understanding the impact of plant litters on soil nitrogen (N) dynamics could facilitate development of management strategies that promote plantation ecosystem function. Our objective was to evaluate the effects of different litter types on N mineralization and availability, microbial biomass, and...

Abstract

This study aimed to determine the productivity and energy values of 10 poplar cultivars for use as potential fuel sources in Poland. The study was conducted over a seven-year cycle in northern Poland. The cultivars belonged to clones traditionally used for timber production, as well as new clones...

Abstract

To improve the productivity and wood quality of poplar plantations, effects of four planting spacing on canopy characteristics, biomass production and stem roundness in poplar plantations were evaluated over 8 years. Planting spacing influenced canopy characteristics of the plantations, and further ...

Abstract

Short rotation coppices have aroused wide concerns as a means to produce renewable energy materials, as their products, such as biomass particle fuel, bio-ethanol, can substitute decreasing fossil fuel. The paper introduced the research progress at home and abroad in poplar short rotation coppices...

Abstract

Aboveground biomass estimation in short-rotation forestry plantations is an essential step in the development of crop management strategies as well as allowing the economic viability of the crop to be determined prior to harvesting. Hence, it is important to develop new methodologies that improve...

Abstract

Retention harvesting, an approach that intentionally retains legacy features such as mature overstory trees, provides options for achieving ecological objectives. At the same time, retained overstory trees may compete with the nearby recovering understory for resources, and much remains to be...

Abstract

In Canada, the annual allowable cut (AAC) sets the harvest limit of roundwood and aims to maintain the long-term productive capacity of the forest while taking into account other values such as biodiversity and needs of stakeholders. Current harvest levels in the province of Quebec, which feed an...

Abstract

Entoleuca mammata [causing Hypoxylon canker (HC)] is one of the most serious pathogens that are colonising Populus species. The area of fast-growing hybrid aspen plantations has remarkably increased in northern Europe because of the high demand for woody biomass, but the prevalence of HC and the...

Abstract

The use of saline water in irrigation is cause for concern due to the reduced availability of fresh water resources for agroforestry in some regions; however, salinity can negatively affect plant populations, such as Populus. Here, magnetic techniques were employed to investigate their effects on...
