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

To improve the productivity and wood quality of poplar plantations, effects of four planting spacing on canopy characteristics, biomass production and stem roundness in poplar plantations were evaluated over 8 years. Planting spacing influenced canopy characteristics of the plantations, and further ...

Abstract

To elucidate the root-system characteristics of P. tomentosa adapting to seasonal fluctuation in the groundwater table, coarse-root architecture and fine-root morphology were investigated in a P. tomentosa plantation under groundwater table fluctuation with an average annual amplitude of 363 cm....

Abstract

Plantations of fast-growing hybrid trees, such as hybrid poplars and hybrid larch, are increasingly used for wood and timber production, but they are also believed to impair forest biodiversity. Most studies that have assessed how such plantations may alter the diversity and composition of...

Abstract

Long-term sustainability of forest resources is in question given wide-spread use of conventional clear-cut silviculture. In response, variable retention (VR) harvest has been increasingly promoted as a landscape-based approach to enhance sustainability by maintaining biodiversity and other...

Abstract

Partial harvesting is thought to result in more structurally diverse forest stands, providing a promising alternative to clearcutting and helping balance timber production and biodiversity conservation. Evidence for this hypothesis is based mostly on understory vegetation communities, with little...

Abstract

In response to concerns about the effects of traditional timber harvesting practices on biodiversity, we examined the effects of alternative silvicultural systems, including partial cutting and modified herbicide use on understory plant communities in an aspen-dominated mixedwood stand. These...
