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

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....

Abstract

Specific gravity is an important consideration for traditional uses of hybrid poplars for pulp and solid wood products, as well as for biofuels and bioenergy production. While specific gravity has been shown to be under strong genetic control and subject to within-tree variability, the role of...

Abstract

Pruning is one of the silvicultural practices recommended for poplar plantations in order to produce clearwood. Common wisdom proposes pruning during the summer season, however little is known on trees' physiological responses to pruning season and intensity. This study aimed at determining the...

Abstract

We examined the effect of ambient ozone on visible foliar injury, growth and biomass in field-grown poplar cuttings of an Oxford clone sensitive to ozone (Populus maximoviczii Henry × berolinensis Dippel) irrigated with ethylenediurea (EDU) or water for three years. EDU is used as an ozone...

Abstract

Short Rotation Forestry (SRF) plantations are estimated around 7 000 hectares in Italy, mostly established in northern regions. Recently thousands hectares of SRF were established in central and southern regions of Italy also (especially in Latium and Molise) due to the promising introduction of...

AbstractFull Text

Growth and timber production of 28 poplar clones were evaluated. A set of clones was derived from 14 clones newly bred in Forestry and Game Management Research Institute in the Czech Republic, eight well-known cultivars of Populus × euroamericana planted in Europe and imported to the Czech...

Abstract

This review summarises the knowledge about the ecology, breeding and management of hybrid aspen (Populus × wettsteinii Hämet-Ahti=P. tremula L. × P. tremuloides Michx.). The review is restricted mainly to Northern Europe, where hybrid aspen has been most intensively studied and cultivated and where ...

Abstract

Fast-growing hybrid poplars (Populus spp.) have been proposed as a means of achieving restoration objectives on former agricultural land by providing shelter for slower-growing species. Intensive two-stage scenarios of mixed plantations are also possible using valuable hardwoods interplanted among...
