Abstract

Research Highlights: This research provides a firm basis for understanding the improved aspen hybrid performance that aims at facilitating optimal clone selection for industrial application. Background and Objectives: Rapid growth and wood properties make aspen (Populus tremula L.) suitable for the ...

Abstract

At northern latitudes a rise in atmospheric humidity and precipitation is predicted as a consequence of global climate change. We studied several growth and functional traits of hybrid aspen (Populus tremula L. × P. tremuloides Michx.) in response to elevated atmospheric humidity (on average 7%...

Abstract

This review summarises the knowledge about the ecology, breeding and management of hybrid aspen (Populus × wettsteinii Hämet-Ahti=P. tremula L. × P. tremuloides Michx.). The review is restricted mainly to Northern Europe, where hybrid aspen has been most intensively studied and cultivated and where ...

Abstract

Floristic diversity was studied in 7- to 8-year-old commercial hybrid aspen (Populus tremula × Populus tremuloides) plantations on abandoned agricultural sites with a different land use (grassland or crop field) and site preparation (whole-area ploughing or strip tillage) history in Estonia. The...

Abstract

The productivity of hybrid aspen (Populus tremula × P. tremuloides) stands in southern Sweden, originating from clone selections performed during the 1980s, was investigated. Thirteen former research and demonstration sites were included. Repeated measurements of tree diameters and heights were...

Abstract

In 1993, various doses of waste water sludge (180, 360 or 720 t/ha dry matter) were applied to the surface or incorporated into the peat of exploited high-moor peatlands used for short rotation forestry with deciduous species in Lithuania. The remaining peat layer was 0.5-1.0 m deep. Application of ...

Abstract

Methods, aims and achievements in poplar breeding in Germany are discussed. The main crossing combinations consist of Populus maximowiczii × P. trichocarpa, P. maximowiczii × P. nigra, P. deltoides × P. trichocarpa, and P. tremula × P. tremuloides. The clone 'Astria' (hybrid aspen from vegetative...

Abstract

The woody biomass yields of 15 progenies were tested in short rotation plantations at two previously agricultural sites in Bavaria and in Hesse, Germany. The progenies resulted from controlled inter- and intraspecific crosses between European (Populus tremula) and American (P. tremuloides)...

Abstract

In trials with 13 species of deciduous trees and shrubs planted in 1962 in 3 different types of shelterbelt, Quercus petraea, Fraxinus pennsylvanica, Populus tremula × P. tremuloides and to a lesser extent Ulmus minor were suitable as high shelter, and Sambucus nigra, Lonicera ledebourii and Prunus ...
