Abstract

In Canada, the annual allowable cut (AAC) sets the harvest limit of roundwood and aims to maintain the long-term productive capacity of the forest while taking into account other values such as biodiversity and needs of stakeholders. Current harvest levels in the province of Quebec, which feed an...

Abstract

In order to improve water management in Populus tomentosa plantations, the variation in the FAO-56 parameters of the basal crop coefficient (Kcb) and soil evaporation (Es) in mature P. tomentosa plantations under different soil water availability treatments were investigated over two growing...

Abstract

Motor-manual tree felling and processing (MMTFP) is among the most used options in timber harvesting operations and it is formally known to be a heavy job exposing the workers to safety hazards and harmful factors. Nevertheless, both workload and exposure depend on many operational, organizational, ...

Abstract

Marssonina brunnea is an important pathogen that causes Marssonina leaf spot disease of poplar (MLDP) in various poplar species. Resistance breeding is considered as the main method for preventing this disease and requires information on genetic diversity and population structure. However,...

Abstract

This paper provides a brief overview of the potential place of a range of (mainly hybrid) poplars and aspen in British forestry. The paper discusses the uses of the species in specialist applications such as short rotation biomass production. Further, the following information about the species are ...

Abstract

Understanding the impact of plant litters on soil nitrogen (N) dynamics could facilitate development of management strategies that promote plantation ecosystem function. Our objective was to evaluate the effects of different litter types on N mineralization and availability, microbial biomass, and...

Abstract

The environmental impact of timber production from poplar plantation was evaluated by means of Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) using an attributional approach. A comparison was performed between a baseline scenario and an alternative one in which different harvesting operations were identified. An...

Abstract

Schizoempodium mesophyllincola is an eriophyid mite that feeds in leaves of Populus trichocarpa in the central part of this cottonwood tree's range (i.e., coastal British Columbia, Washington and Oregon) in the Pacific Northwest (PNW) of North America, and on some interspecific hybrids planted in...

Abstract

In Great Lakes aspen forests, clearcutting and whole-tree skidding (WTS) has been the usual practice. Soil disturbances from WTS sometimes lead to regeneration declines in areas of high equipment traffic. Advances in harvesting mechanization have resulted in increased utilization of cut-to-length...

Abstract

The effects of forest thinning and wood quality on wood decomposition in the mineral soil were investigated in a Chinese pine (Pinus tabuliformis Carriére) plantation in northern China by measuring mass loss and changes in wood properties (carbohydrates, lignin and nitrogen (N) concentrations) in...
