Abstract

Five short papers given at this meeting are presented, covering poplar [Populus sp.] silviculture in Belgium, and utilization of poplar by the Italian forest products industry.

Abstract

In Italy, marginal agricultural areas in hilly or montane zones have seen a large decline in agricultural activity over the last 50 yr, and much abandoned land is reverting to scrub woodland and forest. A discussion is presented of the potential of poplar [Populus sp.] short rotation silviculture...

Abstract

An account of the economics, energy potential, and environmental value of short rotation coppice forestry (in Italy). The species most frequently used are Robinia pseudoacacia, Salix sp. and Populus hybrids. Data are tabulated to illustrate typical start-up costs, production costs for 8, 16 and 24...

Abstract

A comparison (using yield tables and production costs) of growth and economic returns of two poplar [Populus] clones grown since the 1950s in central Sicily. P. 'I-214', introduced in 1952, is grown on intensive, irrigated, 11-year rotations on several forest farms. A naturalized P. canadensis ...

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

An analysis of the development of poplar [Populus sp.] silviculture in N. Italy, which compares costs and stumpage prices for the period 1950-1985 with those of principal alternative crops (maize, rice and cereals). Data are presented on: costs of establishing and tending poplar plantations over 10 ...

Abstract

Results from 1967-77 experiments on the cost and effects of irrigation on poplar [Populus sp.] are re-examined using 1989 prices. Production costs in 1989 for a 6×5 m spacing with 2 irrigations each of 1200 m3 water/ha were double those of 1979, whereas revenue had only increased by about 60%.

Abstract

As part of a review of poplar silviculture in Italy, a general overview of total wood production in Italy is presented, for the period 1961-83. Data are tabulated and briefly discussed, including: forest versus plantation timber, broadleaf versus conifer wood, timber versus fuelwood, value of...

Abstract

The loss of volume attributable to M. brunnea in the production of Poplar wood in Italy is probably ca. 16%. The estimated mean annual soil rental (assuming an interest rate of 7 %) in the absence and in the presence (uncontrolled) of the disease is Lire 53, 000 and 15, 000 respectively; in...

Abstract

Discusses data (tabulated) from a further study of the Poplar plantations (clone 'I-214') at the farm in Lombardy previously investigated [cf. F.A. 24 No. 4946], and concludes that, with present Italian cultivation techniques, the maximum income is obtainable from stands at moderate spacings...
