  • Integrated approach for health status assessment of urban forests in the
           municipalities of Etropole  and Pravets, Bulgaria

    • Abstract: Silva Balcanica 23(1): 89-102
      DOI : 10.3897/silvabalcanica.23.e91220
      Authors : Margarita Georgieva, Georgi Georgiev, Miroslav Ivanov, Konstantin Tyufekchiev, Sevdalin Belilov, Yonko Dodev, Plamen Glogov, Mira L. Georgieva, Grud Popov, Svetozar Madzhov : In 2020, the health status of urban forests in Etropole and Pravets municipalities was monitored based on remote sensing data and field assessment. The study provides information for early detection and identification of pests and pathogens causing damage in different forest types. Three forest stands were assessed: Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) plantation near the town of Etropole, European beech (Fagus sylvatica) natural stand near Etropole Monastery, and Quercus spp. coppice stands in ‘Nebesnite Pasbishta’ forest park near Osikovitsa village. In two sample plots (town of Etropole and Osikovitsa village), remote sensing data were obtained by a ‘Parrot Sequoia’ multispectral camera integrated with a specialized professional system eBee ‘Flying Wing’. Normalised difference vegetation index (NDVI) was assessed by digital mixing of imagery, captured in the red and near-infrared range. It was established that the Scots pine plantations were weakened, with NDVI values between 0.66 and 0.75. The oak stands in the area of Osikovitsa village were in better health condition (NDVI mainly 0.79-0.98). Symptoms of diseases and pest damage were found during the field verifications. Severe deterioration caused by the invasive fungal pathogen Dothistroma septosporum had destroyed the pine plantation near Etropole. The pathogen caused premature needle defoliation, resulting in loss of timber yield and, in severe cases, tree death. In oak stands, damage was caused mainly by the invasive insect pest – oak lace bug (Corythucha arcuata). In Fagus sylvatica forests damage was caused mainly by abiotic factors (snow and wind), and wood destroying fungus Fomes fomentarius. HTML XML PDF

  • Winter desiccation of dwarf pine (Pinus mugo Turra) needles in the area of
           Belmeken Dam

    • Abstract: Silva Balcanica 23(1): 79-88
      DOI : 10.3897/silvabalcanica.23.e90082
      Authors : Sonja Bencheva, Danail Doychev : In the summer of 2018, browning and drying of the needles on the dwarf pine (Pinus mugo Turra) formations in the vicinity of the dam Belmeken (Rila Mt.) were found. The damages were concentrated mainly in the southern part of the plants and affect the young needles on the tops of the shoots. During the route survey conducted in 2019, almost complete recovery of the affected plants was observed. Symptoms of drying were found only on single bushes. Studies and laboratory analyses gave reason to conclude, that the drying was due to adverse weather conditions in the winter of 2017-2018, when there was significantly less than normal rainfall, and sudden temperature changes and extremes were found. Established in the dry needles, fungi of the genera Lophodermium, Hendersonia and Neofusicoccum can be characterized as weak parasites, manifested secondarily, or as endophytes, which under physiological stress due to changes in certain environmental factors can become latent pathogens, worsening the condition of dwarf pine.

  • Effect of tree shelters on the survival and growth of coniferous tree
           species in Central South Bulgaria

    • Abstract: Silva Balcanica 23(1): 67-78
      DOI : 10.3897/silvabalcanica.23.e84286
      Authors : Krasimira Petkova, Nasko Iliev, Martin Borisov, Martin Sattler : The effects of tree shelters on the survival, height and diameter growth of three coniferous tree species – Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.), Norway spruce (Picea abies (L.) H. Karst.) and Silver fir (Abies alba Mill.) were observed. The study was conducted in two experimental plantations, established in the spring of 2016 in the Training and Experimental Forest Range Jundola (Central South Bulgaria). Three experimental variants with tree shelters – Tubex Ventex Classic, Layflat Shelterguard, Layflat Treeguard and a control one (without tree shelters) were used. Twenty to twenty-five seedlings in three replications of each variant and tree species were planted. The experimental plantation 1 included Scots pine and Norway spruce and was established on a south east-facing terrain at an altitude of 1400 m. The soil is Cambisols (FAO) mixture of clay and sandy, medium stony, medium deep to deep. The habitat is medium rich, slightly moist. The experimental plantation 2 is of Silver fir and was located on an east-facing terrain at an altitude of 1400 m. The soil is Cambisols (FAO) mixture of clay and sandy, medium stony, medium deep to deep. The habitat is medium rich, slightly moist to moist.In the autumn of the fifth year after the establishment, inventories and measurements of heights, height increment and groundline diameter of the seedlings were made. The survival in both experimental plantations was higher in the variants with tree shelter. The height growth of all tree species was better in tree shelter variants, with the highest average height in the variant with Tubex Ventex Classic. The biggest height increment was established in the variant with Layflat Shelterguard for Norway spruce and Silver fir and in variant without tree shelters for Scots pine. The ground line diameter was highest in control variant for Scots pine and Norway spruce and in the variant with Layflat Treegard for the Silver fir. HTML XML PDF

  • Distribution of Biscogniauxia mediterranea and its potential insect
           vectors on Quercus suber in Southwestern Bulgaria

    • Abstract: Silva Balcanica 23(1): 57-65
      DOI : 10.3897/silvabalcanica.23.e89314
      Authors : Sonja Bencheva, Danail Doychev : This is the first study in Bulgaria on the distribution of Biscogniauxia mediterraneа in cork oak plantations (Quercus suber). Symptoms of the disease (presence of exudate and wounds with stroma) caused by the fungus have been found on stems and branches of cork oak in Maleshevska Mountain. Harvesting of cork does not visibly affect the phytosanitary status of the trees. A significantly higher risk of parasitic fungus development occurs in coppice-managed crops where it causes the death of young trees. The associations of ten insect species with the Quercus suber are new for Bulgaria. Eight of them are possible vectors of the fungus. HTML XML PDF

  • An overview of work productivity evaluation of farm tractors in timber
           skidding operations

    • Abstract: Silva Balcanica 23(1): 21-36
      DOI : 10.3897/silvabalcanica.23.e82383
      Authors : Mohammad Reza Ghaffariyan : Farm tractors have been applied in forest operations to carry out several tasks such as tree/felling/process-ing, forwarding, loading, skidding and cable yarding. Farm tractors can be equipped with special logging equipment that allows for their safe and efficient work in the harvesting of forest stands. This research is aimed to collect and review available literary sources on the productivity of farm tractors during skidding operations. The study results showed that work productivity of farm tractors for timber skidding has been studied by several researchers around the world. According to the results, the reported work productivity of skidding with farm tractors varied from 1.2 m3/PMH0 to 15.8 m3/PMH0 among international studies. Main variables impacting the work productivity of skidding included skidding distance, load volume, number of pieces per turn, tree diameter, tree length, slope of skid trails and engine power. Proper skid trail planning, applying suitable skidding equipment (e.g. winches, sulkies etc.), considering suitable engine size and prop-er safety standards can all help improving the work efficiency of the farm tractors during timber extracting. The information provided in this research can help the forest industry users and researchers gain proper knowledge on the work productivity of farm tractors applied for timber skidding. The study results can be also useful for planning and development purposes within small-scale forest operations. HTML XML PDF

  • Dendrochronological analysis of the influence of climate on autochthonous
           and introduced coniferous tree species in the city park “Prostor”,

    • Abstract: Silva Balcanica 23(1): 11-19
      DOI : 10.3897/silvabalcanica.23.e79249
      Authors : Dimitar Petrov Dimitrov, Miglena Zhiyanski : The study focuses on the response to climate change of indigenous and introduced coniferous tree species – Austrian black pine (Pinus nigra Arn.) and Colorado spruce (Picea pungens Engelm.) situated in the urban city park “Prostor” in the town of Kardzhali. A multifactor regression analysis was used in the frame of the dendrochronological studies to establish the functional dependence “climate – radial growth”. The model was tested in a climate window with a segment of 16 years – from 2005 to 2020. The data for air temperature and monthly precipitation amounts for Hydro-meteorological station (HMS) Kardzhali were used as predictors for the radial growth. = Both species’s indifference to the temperatures and rainfalls during the months August and September, crucial for the ring formation, leads to the absence of significant growth depressions in tree-rings chronologies and justifies the good condition of the studied trees.

  • New tachinid parasitoids on pine processionary moth (Thaumetopoea
           pityocampa) (Diptera: Tachinidae) in Bulgaria

    • Abstract: Silva Balcanica 23(1): 5-10
      DOI : 10.3897/silvabalcanica.23.e81890
      Authors : Georgi Georgiev, Zdravko Hubenov, Plamen Mirchev, Margarita Georgieva, Maria Matova : The tachinid parasitoids (Diptera: Tachinidae) of the pine processionary moth (Thaumetopoea pityocampa) were studied in 2019 and 2020 in the Eastern Rhodopes (Fotinovo, Kandilka and Sarnak vills.), the Western Rhodopes (Dobrostan vill.) and the Struma Valley (town of Sandanski). In total, 1193 larvae and pupae of T. pityocampa were collected in 40-50-year-old Pinus nigra plantations. They were transported and observed in laboratory conditions at 20-22 °С. Three parasitoids, Compsilura concinnata, Exorista (Exorista) fasciata and Phryxe vulgaris were reared from the host. In this study, E. fasciata was established for the first time in trophic association with T. pityocampa. In addition, P. vulgaris was confirmed as a parasitoid of the host. The mortality of the pine processionary moth caused by tachinids in different localities was 0.5-5.3%, with an average of 2.6% for the country. HTML XML PDF
