Abstract

This paper provides a brief overview of the potential place of a range of (mainly hybrid) poplars and aspen in British forestry. The paper discusses the uses of the species in specialist applications such as short rotation biomass production. Further, the following information about the species are ...

Abstract

In Great Lakes aspen forests, clearcutting and whole-tree skidding (WTS) has been the usual practice. Soil disturbances from WTS sometimes lead to regeneration declines in areas of high equipment traffic. Advances in harvesting mechanization have resulted in increased utilization of cut-to-length...

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

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

Differences in Populus nigra L. clone resistance to the rust fungus Melampsora larici-populina Kleb. (MLP) were studied in field trials where infected trees were compared with fungicide-protected trees. MLP rust infections were assessed using a 6-point scale. Four parameters of poplar growth were...

Abstract

Background: Renewable energy sources such as biomass are an important aspect of the energy policy of the European Union. As the use of 'full-value wood' for energy purposes has been restricted, short-rotation forestry may be an alternative source of woody biomass. In Poland, the most promising...

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

In the province of Québec, approximately 12 000 ha of fast-growing poplar plantations are managed by industrials, while small private landowners have planted only 1000 ha. Most of these poplar plantations are established on clearcut forest sites (approx. 11 000 ha). What are the yields of these...
