Abstract

After harvesting and extracting poplar trees, the agricultural land should be restored for further cultivation by removing the root systems. This operation is done with extraction or stumps grinding using special machines. In Italy, the stumps grinding is actually the operation more practiced. This ...

Abstract

Some quantitative consequences of poplar rust attacks (Melampsora larici-populina and M. allii-populina) were analysed, both in absence and in presence of some preventive chemical treatments. Their effectiveness was previously assessed only partially and without evaluations of plant behaviour in...

Abstract

Growth and woody biomass production of three Populus species (Populus nigra clone Jean Pourtet, P. alba clone 2AS-11 and P. × euramericana [P. canadensis] clone I-214), were followed during the first growing season after coppice of a short rotation coppice culture exposed to elevated atmospheric CO...

Abstract

Hybrid poplar plantations are one of the most important sources of timber and wood fibres in Italy and represent a significant alternative as sustainable use of agricultural land. Effective management of such plantations requires adequate growth and yield models. In light of this, the paper...

Abstract

High-density short-rotation poplar (Populus sp.) plantations are a large potential biomass energy resource in Italy. These energy crops also have great environmental benefits in comparison with fossil fuels, particularly when used for direct combustion. The author gives a short account of the...

Abstract

Photosynthetic capacity was assessed in coppices of three poplar clones (Populus alba genotype 2AS11, P. euramericana [P. canadensis] genotype I-214 and Pinus nigra genotype) growing in the POPFACE/EUROFACE free-air CO2 enrichment experiment in central Italy. Plants were grown either at an elevated ...

Abstract

A description is given of the feasibility study to supply the energy needs of the Istituto Sperimentale per la Meccanizzazione Agricola from fuelwood grown on the site of the Institute at Tormancina, north-east of Rome, Italy. The species to be grown on the 70 ha farm would be Populus × ...

Abstract

Using 1950-1983 statistics, production and use of poplar, particularly Populus canadensis, in Piedmont and Lombardy, N. Italy, are described and discussed. Data on utilization of poplar wood nationally (both imported and home-produced) and by industry (plywood, paper, particleboards, packaging,...

Abstract

Results of a 10-year study on 2 plantations (one clayey, one sandy soil) in N. Italy are presented. Growth (basal area, diameter at breast height, height) and mortality data for 5 poplar [Populus canadensis] clones are compared: P. 'I-214', P. 'Boccalari', P. 'Adige' (described as 'Canadian...

Abstract

Comparative analyses of the mean b.a./ha of stands of 16 clones of P. X 'canadensis' at four sites, five years after planting, showed that it would be better to continue growing P. 'I-214' since the other clones tested either grew more slowly or lacked any superior qualities that could justify the...
