Abstract

The effect of varying composition and abundance of neighbouring herbaceous vegetation on tree growth in commercial hybrid poplar plantations remains unclear. We evaluated relationships between tree stem volume, volume increment, and the abundance of various growth forms (perennial grasses, legumes, ...

Abstract

Most research on bioenergy short rotation woody crops (SRWC) has been dedicated to the genera Populus and Salix. These species generally require relatively high-input culture, including intensive weed competition control, which increases costs and environmental externalities. Widespread native...

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

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

At northern latitudes a rise in atmospheric humidity and precipitation is predicted as a consequence of global climate change. We studied several growth and functional traits of hybrid aspen (Populus tremula L. × P. tremuloides Michx.) in response to elevated atmospheric humidity (on average 7%...

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

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...

Abstract

Re-vegetation is urgently needed to increase the carbon sink for moderating atmospheric CO2 by forest ecosystem, especially northeastern part of Asia with large population. We partly plant fast-growing species, such as birch (Betula spp.), larch (Larix spp.) and poplar (Populus spp.) in...
