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

Planting white spruce (Picea glauca (Moench) Voss) under established aspen (Populus tremuloides Michx.) stands has substantial potential for regenerating mixedwood ecosystems in the western Canadian boreal forest. The presence of an aspen overstory serves to ameliorate frost and winter injury...

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

The paper analysed production and economic effectiveness of a short-rotation coppice plantation, namely J 105, after the first rotation period of 7 and 8 years respectively. The plantation is located in the region of the Bohemian-Moravian Highlands with an annual precipitation of 497 mm and mean...

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

Five selected papers are presented from the conference. Topics discussed include partial cutting as an analogue to stem exclusion and dieback in trembling aspen, natural canopy disturbances in mixed forests in Quebec, light availability in relation to gap mosaics in Japanese cedar plantations,...

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

Research was conducted in the experiment plot of euramerican poplar, clone I-214, which was founded with one year seedling type 1/1 with spacing 6×6 m in the square system on the alluvial soils of river Sava basin in which browning processes is expressed. Eleven years after the plantation...

Abstract

The present study was conducted to investigate the impact of poplar inter-cropping on pre-bearing behaviour of four fruit crops namely, peach, Kinnow, plum and guava. Per cent increment for stock diameter and height was observed in Kinnow and for scion it was in plum inter-cultivated with poplar....
