  • A New Site Index Model for Intensively Managed Loblolly Pine (Pinus taeda)
           Plantations in the West Gulf Coastal Plain
    • Authors: Trim K; Coble D, Weng Y, et al.
      Pages: 2 - 13
      Abstract: AbstractSite index (SI) estimation for loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) plantations is important for the successful management of this important commercial tree species in the West Gulf Coastal Plain of the United States. This study evaluated various SI models for intensively managed loblolly plantations in the West Gulf Coastal Plain using data collected from permanent plots installed in intensively managed loblolly pine plantations across east Texas and western Louisiana. Six commonly used SI models (Cieszewski GADA model, both Chapman-Richards ADA and GADA models, both Schumacher ADA and GADA models, and McDill-Amateis GADA model) were fit to the data and compared. The Chapman-Richards GADA model and the McDill-Amateis GADA model were similar and best in their fit statistics. These two models were further compared to the existing models (Diéguez-Aranda et al. 2006 (DA2006), Coble and Lee 2010 (CL2010)) commonly used in the region. Both the Chapman-Richards GADA and the McDill-Amateis GADA models consistently predicted greater heights up to age 25 than the models of DA2006 and CL2010, with larger height differences for the higher quality sites, but predicted shorter heights thereafter. Ultimately, the McDill-Amateis GADA model was chosen as the best model for its consistency in predicting reasonable heights extrapolated beyond the range of the data. Foresters can use this model to make more informed silvicultural prescriptions for intensively managed loblolly pine plantations in the West Gulf Coastal Plain.

  • Predictive Ability of Mixed-Effects Height–Diameter Models Fit Using One
           Species but Calibrated for Another Species
    • Authors: Vanderschaaf C.
      Pages: 14 - 24
      Abstract: AbstractMixed-effects individual tree height–diameter models are presented for important pines in the Western Gulf, USA. Equations are presented for plantations of loblolly (Pinus taeda L.), longleaf (Pinus palustris P. Mill.), shortleaf (Pinus echinata Mill.), and slash (Pinus elliottii Engelm.) pine. To produce localized individual tree height estimates, these models can be calibrated after obtaining height–diameter measurements from a plot/stand of interest. These equations can help answer an interesting question of whether a model fit for one species can be calibrated to produce reasonable height estimates of another species. In situations where mixed-effects models have not been developed for a particular species, perhaps an equation from another species can be used. This question was addressed by calibrating these models using independent data of loblolly, longleaf, and slash pine plantations located in South Carolina. For each calibration species, in addition to the models developed described above, previously published models, but of the same model form, fit using other species from across the USA were examined. Results show that models of a variety of species can be calibrated to provide reasonable predictions for a particular species. Predictions using this particular model form indicate that model calibration is more important than species-specific height–diameter relations.

  • A Growth and Yield Model for Eucalyptus benthamii in the Southeastern
           United States
    • Authors: Hall K; Stape , Bullock , et al.
      Pages: 25 - 37
      Abstract: AbstractIn recent Eucalyptus cold-tolerance trials, E. benthamii has shown good growth rates as well as cold tolerance for USDA Plant Hardiness Zones 8 and 9. This study developed growth and yield models for E. benthamii in the southeastern United States. A network of 182 temporary sample plots of E. benthamii ranging in age from 1.5 to 13.3 years was established, and inventory data were collected. Site quality was determined by fitting a polymorphic site index curve, whereas a function for stand basal area based on age, dominant height, and site occupancy was fitted. Stand-level volume and dry-weight biomass prediction equations were fitted as a function of dominant height and basal area. Based on the growth and yield model results, mean annual increments ranged from 26.4 m3 ha–1 year–1 at rotation age 6 years on the best sites to 13.7 m3 ha–1 year–1 at rotation age 10 years on the poorest sites. This is the first published set of management-oriented models for land managers considering planting E. benthamii in the southeastern United States.

  • Differential Impacts of Emerald Ash Borer (Agrilus planipennis Fairmaire)
           on Forest Communities Containing Native Ash (Fraxinus spp.) Species in
           Eastern North America
    • Authors: Granger J; Zobel J, Buckley D.
      Pages: 38 - 48
      Abstract: AbstractInvasion by emerald ash borer (EAB; Agrilus planipennis Fairmaire), an exotic pest, is disrupting natural processes and hindering our ability to conserve genetic diversity and perpetuate ash ecosystem services and functions. The goal of this project was to identify forest communities most at risk in terms of having altered ecosystems following EAB invasion. Using recent data available from the USDA, Forest Service, Forest Inventory and Analysis program, we calculated Shannon–Wiener species diversity index values for forests containing each of the six native ash species found in the eastern United States. These forest communities differed in their species diversity index values, and diversity indices varied across ecosystem provinces and states. In addition, communities containing ashes that are restricted by a narrow range of suitable environmental conditions consistently had lower diversity index values than communities of ash species with greater geographical ranges. Finally, forest stand cohorts (i.e., seedlings, saplings, and canopy trees) had similar species diversity indices across forest communities containing a single ash species. The tree species diversity index values quantified for communities with a single ash species will provide managers with additional information for prioritizing EAB control measures and restoration efforts following EAB invasions.

  • Dissolved Organic Matter Characteristics and Important Site Factors in a
           Subtropical Mountain Forest in Central China
    • Authors: Wang M; Liao C, Tian Q, et al.
      Pages: 49 - 57
      Abstract: AbstractDissolved organic matter is important in the vertical and lateral translocation of nutrients in forest ecosystems. However, little is known about the changes in dissolved organic matter concentration and chemical components in ecosystem sources in humid mountain forests. Here, we measured the concentration and chemical components of dissolved organic matter at throughfall, stemflow, litter leachate, runoff, and soil pore water (at depths of 10 cm, 30 cm, and 60 cm) in a subtropical humid mountain forest during two growing seasons. The concentration of dissolved organic carbon and dissolved nitrogen showed a clear monthly trend. The dissolved organic carbon concentration and the proportion of hydrophobic organic acid in the surficial water were higher than those in the soil pore water, and this difference was accompanied by a decrease in the hydrophobic organic acid concentration from the surficial water to the soil pore water. We also found that dissolved organic matter properties in surficial water were related to canopy cover, tree species, litter carbon content, and slope, whereas dissolved organic matter in soil pore water was associated with soil C, N, and P content and pH. In addition, the rainfall pattern is important to the dissolved organic matter concentration and partitioning within the seven sources. These findings showed that the dissolved organic carbon movement from surficial water into soil pore water is a significant component of carbon cycling in forest ecosystems, and this is important in estimating the carbon budget in forest ecosystems.

  • Nitrogen Availability Decreases the Severity of Snow Storm Damage in a
           Temperate Forest
    • Authors: Walter C; Burnham M, Adams M, et al.
      Pages: 58 - 65
      Abstract: AbstractStorms are among the greatest natural disturbances in temperate forests, and increased nitrogen (N) availability is thought to increase storm damage. However, the extent to which N availability increases damage from snowfall is less clear. To test how N availability might affect the susceptibility of trees to snow damage in a temperate forest, we took advantage of an opportunistic storm and surveyed damage in fertilized and unfertilized stands, and across a native N availability gradient. In response to a severe, early season snow storm—a consequence of Superstorm Sandy—the percentages of both basal area and stems damaged were lower in a fertilized watershed than in an unfertilized watershed. Across the native N availability gradient, the percentage of basal area damaged by snow decreased with higher soil N. The effects of N availability on damage were also affected by tree species. Our results suggest that N availability decreases damage from snow storms, contrary to our hypotheses drawn from broader studies. Understanding the relation between storm damage and N availability is important, considering the global increase in N deposition, and since severe storms are likely to become more prevalent with climate change.

  • Understory Vegetation Richness and Diversity of Eucalyptus benthamii and
           Pinus elliottii Plantations in the Midsouth US
    • Authors: De Stefano A; Blazier M, Comer C, et al.
      Pages: 66 - 81
      Abstract: AbstractIn the Western Gulf region of the United States cold-tolerant eucalyptus have been explored as pulpwood feedstock. However, non-native plantations may alter understory species diversity, modifying environmental conditions and soil characteristics. Few studies have compared eucalyptus plantations with native ecosystems to understand the impact on understory vegetation in the United States. In this study, we compared understory plant species richness and diversity during 2014–2016 in (1) slash pine (Pinus elliottii) established in 2008, (2) slash pine established in 2013, and (3) and Camden white gum (Eucalyptus benthamii) established in 2013. Overstory characteristics, soil pH, and soil nutrient concentrations were measured to understand factors that affected understory species richness and diversity. Results indicated a decline in understory species richness over time, with Camden white gum in an intermediate condition between same-age slash pine (highest richness) and older slash pine (lowest richness). Leaf area index, soil pH and K, and tree height were the most important factors influencing understory species richness and diversity. The adoption of fast-growing eucalyptus on these sites will probably accelerate the deterioration of natural habitats and reduce open-condition species in favor of shade-tolerant species, overturning the conservation efforts already put in place by governmental agencies and conservation groups.

  • Insight into the Productivity, Cost and Soil Impacts of Cable-assisted
           Harvester-forwarder Thinning in Western Oregon
    • Authors: Green P; Chung W, Leshchinsky B, et al.
      Pages: 82 - 96
      Abstract: AbstractCable-assisted (or tethered) mechanized harvesting has recently been introduced to the Pacific Northwest of the United States, and is rapidly being adopted by the forest industry. However, potential environmental impacts, productivity and cost of the new harvesting systems have not been well-assessed. This study aims to examine the effects of cable assistance on soil compaction, system productivity and cost through a field-based experiment. A harvester-forwarder system was used to thin a harvest unit on dry soils in western Oregon, with and without cable-assistance. We conducted a detailed time study during operations and collected soil measurements before and after machine passes. Machine productivity ranged from 28.75 to 92.36 m3 per scheduled machine hour, with resulting unit costs for untethered and tethered systems ranging from $13.19 to $18.13/m3. Our results showed reduced soil impacts in both extent and degree of soil compaction when cable assistance was employed. The reduced extent of soil impacts is attributed to a reduction in track wander owing to the operative tensions of the tether cable, and the smaller increase in soil density appears to be attributed to combined effects of initially denser soil conditions and reduced shear displacement as a result of cable-assistance.

  • Effects of Arbuscular Mycorrhiza Fungi on the Growth Characteristics, Root
           Morphology, and Ion Distribution of Pyrus betulaefolia Bunge under
           Saline-Alkaline Stress
    • Authors: Yang X; Li H, Jiang L, et al.
      Pages: 97 - 104
      Abstract: AbstractIn this study, Pyrus betulaefolia Bunge seedlings were used to investigate the effects of an arbuscular mycorrhiza fungus (AMF; Funneliformis mosseae) on plant-growth characteristics, root morphology, salt tolerance, and ion distribution under saline-alkaline stress. An indoor pot experiment was conducted in which seedlings were inoculated with Funneliformis mosseae under treatments of four different concentrations of Na2CO3 solution. The results show that AMF could establish symbiotic relations with the P. betulaefolia root system under Na2CO3 stress. Under the same Na2CO3 stress, AMF significantly increased the height growth and biomass accumulation of P. betulaefolia seedlings. AMF also promoted the root growth of P. betulaefolia seedlings. AMF inoculation significantly affected the absorption and distribution of K+ and Na+ in P. betulaefolia. The K/Na ratios in the roots and leaves of seedlings inoculated with AMF were higher than those of seedlings without inoculation. The results of this study show that inoculation with AMF had a positive effect on enhancing the saline-alkaline tolerance of P. betulaefolia, and root treatment of P. betulaefolia seedlings with Funneliformis mosseae has the potential for application in the development of saline-alkaline soil vegetation.

  • Modulation of Morpho-Physiological Responses in Populus deltoides by
           Elevated Carbon Dioxide and Temperature
    • Authors: Yadav S; Singh H, Nautiyal R, et al.
      Pages: 105 - 118
      Abstract: AbstractRising atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) and temperature alter gene-expression arrays commensurate with physio-morphological changes, resulting in issues of adaptation, growth patterns, and productivity of terrestrial vegetation. An experiment was conducted to investigate the adaptive response of Populus deltoides clone G48 to the combined effect of elevated CO2 and temperature inside open-top chambers. The elevated CO2 and temperature acted as environmental cues to help express upregulated/downregulated genes involved in important metabolic pathways. As a result, P. deltoides exposed to the elevated CO2 and temperature developed adaptation to undo the effect by enhancing gaseous exchange, transpiration, and carbon assimilation and partitioning as observed on 180 days after treatment. The elevated conditions significantly enhanced stomatal density and size on adaxial/abaxial leaf surfaces, chlorophyll b that augmented photosynthesis, stomatal conductance, transpiration, and internal CO2, but decreased instantaneous and intrinsic water-use efficiency. These stimulated biomass accumulation in root, stem, and leaves. Hence, the elevated conditions of CO2 and temperature operate at the gene-expression level that acts pleiotropically for reinforcement of photosynthetic apparatus, morphological amendment for accelerated gaseous exchange, and finally growth and biomass improvement, supporting adaptive plasticity of clonal planting stock of the species to future climatic change and global warming.

  • Developing Silvicultural Tools for Managing Mixed Forest Structures in
    • Authors: Caselli M; Loguercio G, Urretavizcaya M, et al.
      Pages: 119 - 129
      Abstract: AbstractLeaf area is an important ecophysiological and silvicultural variable for quantifying the potential production of trees, since it can represent growing space occupancy. At the stand level in mixed forests, productivity is conditioned on how growing space is distributed among different components structure, such as species and strata. In complex structures, traditional forest variables (i.e., basal area) do not allow a good representation of the occupied growing space, whereas leaf area appears as a better indicator. Andean cypress and coihue beech are species of the Andean-Patagonian forests that grow in either pure or mixed stands, presenting high productive potential. The aim of this study was to develop, for each species, leaf area prediction functions through allometric relations and to evaluate the relation between leaf area, volume increment and growing space occupancy. For this purpose, we carried out destructive sampling of individuals of both species in mixed Andean cypress-coihue forests. Results for these species show that leaf area can be reliably estimated by using the models developed in this study. These models, based on sapwood area, tree diameter, and/or height measurements, explain at least 90 percent of variation in leaf area. The functions fitted are a fundamental tool to study the distribution of growth and to formulate management guidelines for mixed forests through the control of growing space occupancy using leaf area index.

  • Comparing the Slope–Area Threshold for Stream Initiation in Primeval and
           Managed Forests of Northern Michigan
    • Authors: Anderson C.
      Pages: 130 - 139
      Abstract: AbstractForest management and other land uses can alter hydrological pathways and affect stream initiation along draining hillslopes. To evaluate this potential effect, primeval forests at the Huron Mountain Club in northern Michigan were compared to surrounding forest lands historically logged. A total of 59 stream channel heads (19 in primeval forests and 40 in managed forests) were mapped using GPS. Per the slope–area method, channel heads were plotted within a digital elevation model to determine drainage area and local slope, which were used to discern a threshold of channel initiation. A watershed Hydrologic Soil Index (representing the tendency for surface runoff) was also determined and evaluated for its importance for channel formation. Consistent with the slope–area method, a significant relation was detected between drainage area and local slope for both managed (R2 = .29) and primeval forest watersheds (R2 = .56). However, no significant difference in relation was detected between forest types. This was noteworthy because soils mapped in the primeval forests had a significantly higher Hydrologic Soil Index indicating thinner soils more prone to surface runoff. Results suggest that forest management has likely varied throughout the region but has sustained forest drainage densities comparable to primeval forests.
