Abstract

Varietal trials of Poplars continue. On the most favourable sites, the most vigourous varieties have reached 50 ft. in height (62 ft. max.) in 8 1/2 years, with girths of ca. 26 in. (29.5 in. max.), and standing volumes of ca. 750 Hoppus ft./acre (18 X 18 ft. spacing). Unfortunately the most...

Abstract

The experiment was laid out in 1955 with 1 + 1 plants of Poplar spaced at 2 X 4 m., and the rows interplanted with rows of Ulmus laevis. Four years after planting, mean height and d.b.h. of P. X robusta (a), P. X regenerata (b), and P. nigra var. thevestina (c) were respectively 14 m. and 12.20...
