  • Density regulation of mixed and mono-specific forest stands as a
           continuum: a new concept based on species-specific coefficients for
           density equivalence and density modification
    • Authors: Pretzsch H; del Río M.
      Pages: 1 - 15
      Abstract: AbstractA wealth of recent research has improved our understanding of the structure, growth and yield of mixed-species stands. However, appropriate quantitative concepts for their silvicultural regulation remain scarce. Due to the species-specific stand densities, growing area requirements and potential over-density, the density and mixing regulation in mixed stands is much more intricate than in monospecific stands.Here, we introduce the species-specific coefficients: density equivalence coefficients (DEC), for density equivalence; and density modification coefficient (DMC), for density modification in mixed species stands. DEC is suitable for the conversion of the stand density and growing area requirement of one species into that of another species. DMC estimates the modification of maximum stand density by tree species mixing using as reference the maximum stand density of one of the species.First, we introduce the theoretical concept of these coefficients. Second, we derive the mean values of these coefficients based on long-term experiments using different mixtures of European beech. Third, we apply DEC and DMC for flexible regulation of the stand density and mixing proportion. Thus, silvicultural regulation of monospecific stands and mixed-species stands forms a continuum, where monospecific stands represent an extreme case of mixed-species stands.Lastly, we discuss the advantages and limitations of these concepts. Future directions comprise the inclusion of additional species, their integration in guidelines and simulation models, and their establishment for the quantitative regulation of experimental plots and the practical implementation in forest stands.

  • White spruce wood quality for lumber products: priority traits and their
           enhancement through tree improvement
    • Authors: Hassegawa M; Savard M, Lenz P, et al.
      Pages: 16 - 37
      Abstract: AbstractWhite spruce breeding has traditionally focused on genetic improvement for high productivity, targeting mostly stem volume. However, new challenges, such as the effects of climate change on individual trees and ecosystems and the changing nature of forest products markets, require action to address these issues while providing improved stock for seed and seedling production. This work aims to define the relative importance of white spruce wood traits for the lumber industry, with the intent of guiding tree breeding programs. This manuscript examines: (1) wood features that are important for lumber, (2) the genetics of wood traits and their improvement and (3) the level of acceptance of raw material with optimal traits, as obtained from a survey conducted with sawmills. Stem diameter at stump height, wood density, bending strength and stiffness were determined as the most important properties for sawmills. Decay proportion, knot diameter, slope of grain and the proportion of compression wood were also determined as important for sawmills, but to a lesser extent. Breeding efforts aiming to produce lumber should focus on stems with improved growth that are capable of sustaining the production of dense wood in greater proportion.

  • Reconstruction of the disturbance history of a temperate coniferous forest
           through stand-level analysis of airborne LiDAR data
    • Authors: Sanchez-Lopez N; Boschetti L, Hudak A.
      Pages: 38 - 55
      Abstract: AbstractSpatially explicit information about stand-level Time Since the last stand-replacing Disturbance (TSD) is fundamental for modelling many forest ecosystem processes, but most of the current satellite remote sensing mapping approaches are based on change detection and time series analysis, and can detect only disturbances that have occurred since the start of the optical satellite data record. The spatial legacy of stand-replacing disturbances can however persist on the landscape for several decades to centuries, in the form of distinct horizontal and vertical stand structure features. We propose a new approach to reconstruct the long-term disturbance history of a forest, estimating TSD through stand-level analysis of LiDAR data, which are highly sensitive to the three-dimensional forest canopy structure. The study area is in the Nez Perce-Clearwater National Forest in north-central Idaho, where airborne LiDAR covering about 52,000 ha and ancillary TSD reference data for a period of more than 140 years were available. The root mean square difference (RSMD) between predicted and reference TSD was 17.5 years with a BIAS of 0.8 years; and on 72.8% of the stands the predicted TSD was less than 10 years apart from the reference TSD (78.2% of the stands when considering only disturbances occurred in the last 100 years). The results demonstrate that airborne LiDAR-derived data have enough explanatory power to reconstruct the long-term, stand-replacing disturbance history of temperate forested areas at regional scales.

  • Compatible taper-volume systems for major tropical species in Mexico
    • Authors: López-Martínez J; Vargas-Larreta B, Aguirre-Calderón O, et al.
      Pages: 56 - 74
      Abstract: AbstractA compatible system consisting of stem taper, merchantable-, stem-, branch- and stem and coarse branch tree volume equations was developed for 11 major tropical species in southeast Mexico. A database corresponding to 6187 felled trees was used to develop the system of equations. Iterative seemingly unrelated regression was used to fit the system in two steps: the stem volume, branch volume and stem and coarse branch tree volume equations were first fitted simultaneously and the common estimated parameters were substituted in the stem taper and merchantable volume equations. In the second step, the remaining parameters were estimated by fitting the stem taper and merchantable volume equations simultaneously. Weighted regression and a second order autoregressive model were used in the model fitting to account for heteroscedasticity and autocorrelation. To assess whether the compatible system differs between ecoregions for the same species, a system with the same set of parameters for all the ecoregions was compared with a system with a different set of parameters for each ecoregion. The results of the comparisons indicated the need to fit a different system for each ecoregion and species. The proposed equations can be used to estimate stem-, branch- and merchantable volume at any upper diameter and height, as well as stem and coarse branch tree volume. If classification of the products by merchantable sizes is not required, the stem and coarse branch volume equation is preferred, thereby simplifying the calculations and making it more suitable for practical purposes.

  • Effect of tree species mixing on stand structural complexity
    • Authors: Juchheim J; Ehbrecht M, Schall P, et al.
      Pages: 75 - 83
      Abstract: AbstractThe proportion of mixed-species forests is presently increasing since they are commonly seen as providing a higher level of many ecosystem goods and services than monospecific stands. This may be due to a more complex three-dimensional distribution pattern of plant elements, which has often been noted, but to date rarely been quantified. In the present study, we used terrestrial laser scanning data to analyze the relationship between tree species mixing and stand structural complexity in three regions of Germany. We examined 60 forest plots representing commercially important and typical species combinations for Central Europe. The results showed an increasing but saturating relationship between stand structural complexity and tree species diversity. Moreover, we found that as the proportion of broadleaved trees increased, the stand structural complexity of coniferous stands also increased. Our study provides evidence that the conversion of monospecific conifer stands into mixed forests with broadleaved tree species as well as mixing tree species with interspecific differences in physiological and morphological traits can promote the development of structurally more complex stand structures.

  • Multifunctional comparison of different management strategies in boreal
    • Authors: Díaz-Yáñez O; Pukkala T, Packalen P, et al.
      Pages: 84 - 95
      Abstract: AbstractIn sustainable forestry, forests should produce multiple ecosystem services for society, such as timber, carbon sequestration and biodiversity. Therefore, in the evaluation of forest management strategies, we have to consider the impacts of management on several ecosystem services. In this study, we compared the effects of five different forest management strategies on timber drain, carbon stocks, carbon balance and biodiversity indicators, while maximizing economic revenues from timber production. The assessment was carried out in a boreal landscape of 43 000 ha over a 100-year calculation period. The five management strategies were rotation forest management (with thinning from below or above), continuous cover forestry, a combination of rotation forest management and continuous cover forestry and any-aged forestry. Rotation forest management with thinning from below was less profitable than the other strategies, which were close to each other in economic profitability. Rotation forest management with thinning from below was also the poorest in terms of carbon stocks, carbon balance and biodiversity indicators. Any-aged and continuous cover forestry were the best in terms of carbon sequestration and biodiversity indicators. In general, management strategies that used thinning from above and that were not restricted to rotation forest management as the only option provided more ecosystem services and were also economically profitable. Such management strategies may help to satisfy the increasing demand for diverse uses of forests.

  • Growth and survival dynamics of partially cut northern hardwood stands as
    • Authors: Moreau G; Achim A, Pothier D.
      Pages: 96 - 106
      Abstract: AbstractModelling growth and survival dynamics after partial harvesting must take account of the heterogeneous spatial pattern of residual trees that results from the presence of machinery trails. We used data from 23 permanent sample plots in northern hardwood stands to reconstruct the growing environment of individual trees before and after partial harvesting. We modelled harvest probability, growth response and survival probability using a complementary set of explanatory variables that was assembled to reflect the spatial distribution of trees and skid trails prior to and after harvest. Results showed that the distribution of harvested trees was concentrated in skid trails and in their close vicinity. However, this spatial pattern had no significant effect on either the post-cut basal area increment (BAI) or the survival of residual trees. BAI and survival of individual trees were both mostly related to the competitive environment prior to harvest, while post-cut changes in competitive environment had only a marginal effect on growth and survival dynamics. We conclude that selection cuts did not substantially increase the growth and survival of residual trees, likely because tree removal was mostly concentrated near skid trails, where the negative effects of machinery access were highest.

  • An insight to the current state and sustainability of urban forests across
           Great Britain based on i-Tree Eco surveys
    • Authors: Monteiro M; Handley P, Doick K.
      Pages: 107 - 123
      Abstract: AbstractUrban trees are instrumental in providing ecosystem services to urban society. However, they are subject to many pressures linked to harsh site conditions created by the urban environment, climate change, attack by pests and diseases and the political and social influences that control how urban trees are perceived and managed. An ongoing provision of services from all trees within an urban area (known as the urban forest) can only be achieved through high resilience to these pressures. This study aims to examine the current state of composition, condition and structure of 12 urban forests across Great Britain, by reviewing data collected from i-Tree Eco city or town-wide surveys and recommending a framework to rate their sustainability. The study shows that urban forests are hardy to local winter temperatures and in good health, but lack in large size trees and tree species diversity. Also, several urban forests offer small percentage canopy cover. The wider application of this framework and the creation of detailed tree strategies could help local authorities to establish management strategies, set goals and monitor progress towards achieving greater sustainability.

  • A recruitment model for beech–oak pure and mixed stands in Belgium
    • Authors: Manso R; Ligot G, Fortin M.
      Pages: 124 - 132
      Abstract: AbstractWe present a recruitment model for pure and mixed beech and oak stands in Belgium, the first empirical model for this forest type in this geographical area. Data from the Wallonia National Forest Inventory were used to fit the model. We adopted a zero-inflated formulation where model parameters governing species’ behaviour were simultaneously fitted. Plot random effects specific to each species were included, the simultaneous fit allowing them to correlate. Model predictions proved accurate and corresponded to current ecological knowledge about the regeneration dynamics of this kind of mixture. While our model could potentially be used to complement the existing beech and oak growth models for this region of Europe, our results also show that beech recruits tend to dominate regardless of the oak share in the overstorey composition and the stand stocking. This confirms that the beech–oak mixture may not be stable under the conditions of the study area and current management aimed at promoting continuous forest cover.

  • Seasonal, medium-term and daily patterns of tree diameter growth in
           response to climate
    • Authors: Vospernik S; Nothdurft A, Mehtätalo L.
      Pages: 133 - 149
      Abstract: AbstractTree growth is expected to be responsive to climatic drivers across a spectrum of temporal scales, ranging from yearly growth to daily water use and photosynthesis. Automatic dendrometers offer the potential to provide continuous high-resolution measurements of tree radius changes. The signal recorded contains three components: (1) a long-term seasonal growth component, (2) a mid-term component representing swelling after rainfall and subsequent drying and (3) daily cycles of water-uptake related to tree transpiration. For 91 trees at 4 sites (Picea abies: 58, Pinus cembra: 17, Fagus sylvatica: 14, Pinus sylvestris: 2) monitored in Austria between 2012 and 2015, we simultaneously modelled these three processes using a hierarchical nonlinear mixed-effects model represented by two logistic growth curves. The focus was on the mid-term and daily component, and therefore long-term growth that is typically modelled by including tree size, competition or site variables was represented by random effects only. Both mid-term and short-term components were species-specific. In general, P. cembra and F. sylvatica were less sensitive to climate variables than P. abies. For all species, the mid-term component was best represented using a 14-day moving average difference between rainfall and potential evapotranspiration, a 24-h moving average of precipitation and its 1–3 days lags, a 24-h moving average temperature and its 1–3 days lags. The daily cycles of water uptake were best related to hourly humidity and its 3-h lag, and interactions with the 14-day moving average difference between rainfall and potential evapotranspiration accounted for attenuating cycles after rainy events and increasing cycles in dry periods.

  • A comparison of UAV laser scanning, photogrammetry and airborne laser
           scanning for precision inventory of small-forest properties
    • Authors: Puliti S; Dash J, Watt M, et al.
      Pages: 150 - 162
      Abstract: AbstractThis study addresses the use of multiple sources of auxiliary data from unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and airborne laser scanning (ALS) data for inference on key biophysical parameters in small forest properties (5–300 ha). We compared the precision of the estimates using plot data alone under a design-based inference with model-based estimates that include plot data and the following four types of auxiliary data: (1) terrain-independent variables from UAV photogrammetric data (UAV-SfM); (2) variables obtained from UAV photogrammetric data normalized using external terrain data (UAV-SfMDTM); (3) UAV-LS and (4) ALS data. The inclusion of remotely sensed data increased the precision of DB estimates by factors of 1.5–2.2. The optimal data sources for top height, stem density, basal area and total stem volume were: UAV-LS, UAV-SfM, UAV-SfMDTM and UAV-SfMDTM. We conclude that the use of UAV data can increase the precision of stand-level estimates even under intensive field sampling conditions.

  • Joining up optimisation of wood supply chains with forest management: a
           case study of North Karelia in Finland
    • Authors: Pekka H; Reetta L, Juha L, et al.
      Pages: 163 - 177
      Abstract: AbstractThis paper presents a spatially explicit methodology for integrated forest management and wood supply chain optimization over time in the context of a Finnish forest strategy anticipating new investments and renewal of business in the wood processing industry. The Finnish MELA simulator was used to generate multiple treatment schedules over time at the management unit level – each treatment schedule providing unique estimates of extracted wood volumes by different assortment categories for each time period. The J linear programming (LP) software was used to analyse different regional forest strategies in terms of wood supply and transportation costs to multiple market destinations. The analysis revealed clear differences both in wood flows and forest resources between strategies maximizing wood supply or optimizing wood supply to market destinations. In addition, the wood flows appeared responsive to new mill and increased demand. Further, the changes in factory price had a heavier impact on pulpwood supply than on sawlog supply. The same methodology can be applied for analysing the impact of new factories on wood flows from forest to factories and between factories or to support forest enterprises in planning their wood supply over multiple time periods and multiple destinations.

           native parasitoid recruitment and association with oak gall inducers in
    • Authors: Jara-Chiquito J; Askew R, Pujade-Villar J.
      Pages: 178 - 186
      Abstract: AbstractThe Asian chestnut gall wasp (ACGW), Dryocosmus kuriphilus (Hymenoptera: Cynipidae), is an invasive pest that affects chestnut trees. The first record of this pest in Spain was in 2012, in Catalonia, and it is now distributed in virtually every chestnut growing area in the country. In this study, we present an overview of parasitoid recruitment by ACGW in Catalonia over a 4-year period (2013–2016) comparing parasitoid communities attacking galls on oak and chestnut trees at the same sites. A total of 22 species of native parasitoids that normally attack oak cynipids emerged from ACGW galls, together with the non-native Torymus sinensis. The most abundant species were Bootanomyia dorsalis, Torymus flavipes, Ormyrus pomaceus and Eupelmus urozonus. The study also found that 20 of the 22 native parasitoids in ACGW galls were also reared from galls of 13 species of oak gall inducer (12 Cynipidae, 1 Cecidomyiidae).
