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

The environmental impact of timber production from poplar plantation was evaluated by means of Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) using an attributional approach. A comparison was performed between a baseline scenario and an alternative one in which different harvesting operations were identified. An...

Abstract

The present paper investigates the influence of thermo-vacuum treatment at 170, 190 and 210°C on the mechanical and physical properties of poplar wood rotary-cut veneers obtained from two different poplar clones ('I-214' and 'Lena'). The modulus of rupture in bending was determined according to a...

Abstract

With the aim of improving poplar timber production, a successive 8-year irrigation and fertilization factorial experiment with three blocks was designed to measure the response of Populus tomentosa stands to water and nitrogen in Huabei Plain, China. Specifically, we examined the responses of four ...

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

The use of biomass for energy purposes is an important European Union policy. In light of the restrictions concerning the use of the full-value wood from forests for energy purposes, short rotation forestry can become an alternative source of woody biomass. In this context, the most promising...

Abstract

Populus nigra L. (black poplar) possesses amphistomatic leaves, with large (giant) and normal sized stomata. The role of giant stomata in leaf development, and the consequences on stomatal density in adult leaves remains elusive. This paper describes the characteristics of ordinary and giant...

Abstract

The sustainability of bioenergy coppice plantations is strongly affected by the Nitrogen (N) balance, whose removal is very high due to the frequent harvest of large quantities of biomass composed of small-sized shoots. Poplar bioenergy coppice plantations could have a Nitrogen removal comparable...

Abstract

The present paper investigates the physical and mechanical modifications of both poplar (I-214 clone) and ceiba veneers and plywood after heat treatments of different intensities (5 and 7% of dry mass losses). Plywood panels were glued before and after heat treatment with urea-formaldehyde (UF) and ...

Abstract

There is a growing interest in fast-growing hybrid poplar and willow plantations in Canada. This interest can be explained both by the rapid growth rate and high yield potential of this type of production system. However, their establishment and maintenance require considerable investments....
