Abstract

Intensive management causes significant changes to the habitat structure of forest stands and threatens forest specialist insect species. To assess and counteract the effect of periodic intensive forestry interventions, such as clear-cutting and reforestation, it is important to adequately quantify ...

Abstract

With progress of tree breeding, vegetative propagation technique and forest industry, clonal forestry has already played a significant role in the world plantation cultivation, and gradually step into the orientational clonal selection, silviculture, and utilization era. In this paper, author's own ...

Abstract

Post-harvest regeneration failure of white spruce (Picea glauca Moench [Voss]), has led to concerns of "de-coniferization" on productive site in the Alaskan boreal forest. Forest management in the region sought historically to increase spruce composition after harvest through silvicultural...

Abstract

The stand initiation stage decisively influences future forest structure and composition, particularly in the boreal forest which is a stand replacement disturbance driven system. In boreal Alaska, the conventional forest management paradigm has focused on the production of large-dimension timber,...

Abstract

The intensification of forest management through afforestation of high-yielding species such as hybrid poplar is considered a possible solution for re-establishing Quebec's forest industry. However, lack of financial data seems to limit the development of poplar cultivation. This paper is a...

Abstract

Although concerns have been raised that increased nutrient demand by fast growing tree species could deplete soil nutrient pools, recent research suggests that some species are able to obtain nutrients via soil mineral weathering. Hybrid poplars, which are fast growing and nutrient demanding...

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...

Abstract

The impact of soil available water content (AWC) on the growth and foliar nutrient concentrations of trees in 7-yr-old hybrid aspen (Populus tremula L. × P. tremuloides Michx.) plantations established on abandoned agricultural lands was studied. AWC in the topmost 75 cm soil layer was significantly ...

Abstract

Background and Purpose: Forest cultures in continental part of Croatia are mainly based on bracken-covered areas and moors on deserted agriculture soils and pastures. Successful afforestation i.e. establishment of forest cultures depends among other things on the understanding of habitats and...

Abstract

Vegetation management is crucial to meeting the objectives of forest plantations. Following public hearing processes, chemical herbicides were banned on Crown forest lands in Québec (Canada) in 2001. Release now mainly relies on mechanical treatments. Our objectives are to review the historical...
