Abstract

Six representative small woodlands including Poplar, Willow, Ash, Oak and Birch on various types of peat soils were studied by members of the Working Group on Forestry in the Urban Agglomeration Area of Holland. On the better site types, Poplar and Willow may be expected to grow well. The lower the ...

Abstract

Report by a working group set up in 1956. The roadside plantings studied were generally 15 years old, mostly of Poplar, but some of Oak, Alder, or mixed hardwoods. Information is given on the effect of pruning date and type of tool on healing, the effect of time of removing epicormics on the...

Uitvoer. Versl. Bosbouwproefsta. T.N.O., Wageningen, 1964, 6, 1, pp 47
Abstract

Contains tabulated statistics of area and yield by species and their values. Ca. 1/2 of the forest area is suitable for Poplars; these provide the greatest volume and value yields, which could be still further increased. Improvements in Willow cultivation lie in breeding, the abolition of the...

Abstract

Gives soil properties and growth-data tables. A relatively high pulpwood production is possible in 10-15 years on these soils, and Poplar is considered a better economic proposition than the Pedunculate Oak hitherto favoured. As, however, this can be proved only by long and difficult trials, an...

Abstract

Preliminary tests of spraying unwanted side branches with amyl 2, 4, 5-T gave promising results with Poplars, but less so with epicormic branches of Oak. If successful, this method will result in a great saving in manpower for pruning. KEYWORDS: Populus \ hybrids \ commercial hybrids \ pruning \...

Abstract

Distinguishes four types of stand according to the water-table. Height and d.b.h. of mean stems of Ash, Oak, Poplar (4 spp.), Alder, and Elm (2 spp.) were determined and compared. Many conclusions were drawn on the silviculture and management of these forests, especially on increment on various...

Abstract

Discusses, with particular reference to climate and soil, the suitability of this region for the production of rapid-growing timber trees, reviews aspects of the world market, and recommends silvicultural systems suitable for growing Poplar, Willow, Oak (Quercus robur), Platanus acerifolia and P....

Abstract

Results of spraying a number of roadside species (including ornamentals) were not encouraging. Buds of a number of species including Platanus acerifolia, Populus spp. and Quercus robur were damaged, and leaf-fall was slow except for a few species including Alnus cordata and Ginkgo biloba. The...
