Abstract

The silviculture of hybrid poplars and other fast-growing tree species is a promising solution to reduce the pressure on natural forests while maintaining wood supplies to industries. However, hybrid poplars are very sensitive to competing vegetation and to inadequate soil conditions and fertility. ...

Abstract

In tree-based intercropping systems, trees, especially hybrid poplars (HP), can compete with crops for light, water and nutrients, resulting in a decrease in crop production. Some tree management characteristics, such as plantation density and tree species selection, may help to partially control...

Abstract

Twelve clones of fast growing trees (willow and poplar) were planted in 1999 under short-rotation intensive culture (SRIC) on an abandoned farmland in southern Quebec. The plantation was established at a density of 18,000 trees per hectare from stem cuttings and no fertilizer and irrigation were...
