Site Index: Accuracy of Prediction

With the current forecasts of increasing demands for forest products from a decreasing land base, many foresters are preoccupied with ways to increase productivity. Therefore, it is appropriate that foresters take a look at just how well they are evaluating productivity, or site quality, at the present time. Evaluation of site quality has always been an important part of forest management. As mana...

An expanded concept of the role of forest industry in private nonindustrial forestry

Forest industries in the southeastern United States offer assistance to private nonindustrial forest landowners in planning and accomplishing regeneration of cutover land and management of subsequent stands. In general, if the landowner sells a tract of timber to the company, t :,e company will develop an intensive regeneration and management plan for the tract and carry it out at company cost to ...

Estimates of Volume and Carbon Stock Removals in Miombo Woodlands of Mainland Tanzania

Miombo woodlands are major vegetation type covering about 93% of the forest land of Mainland Tanzania. It forms an integral part of the rural landscape in Tanzania and plays a crucial role in providing a wide range of goods and services including carbon sequestration. However, the sustainability of forest resources is mostly affected by the magnitude of its utilization. There should be a balance b...

Climate associations with headwater streamflow in managed forests over 16 years and projections of future dry headwater stream channels

Integrating climate-smart principles into riparian and upland forest management can facilitate effective and efficient land use and conservation planning. Emerging values of forested headwater streams can help forge these links, yet climate effects on headwaters are little studied. We assessed associations of headwater discontinuous streams with climate metrics, watershed size, and forest-harvest ...

Tree genetic diversity: A new indicator of how much we conserve

EUFORGEN today published a report that for the first time offers a way to measure the conservation and use of the genetic diversity of forest trees across Europe in a standardized way. This new indicator is based on an agreed revision of a commonly adopted framework. Genetic diversity ensures that forest trees can survive, adapt and evolve under changing environmental conditions. The new indicator...

Effects of diameter distribution errors on stand management decisions according to a simulated individual tree detection

Abstract Key Message Tree-level forest inventory data are becoming increasingly available, which motivates the use of these data for decision-making. However, airborne inventories carried out tree-by-tree typically include systematic errors, which can propagate ...

Interacting effects of global change on forest pest and pathogen dynamics

Pathogens and insect pests are important drivers of tree mortality and forest dynamics, but global change has rapidly altered or intensifed their impacts. Predictive understanding of changing disease and outbreak occurrence has been limited by two factors: (a) tree mortality and morbidity are emergent phenomena determined by interactions between plant hosts, biotic agents (insects or pathogens), a...
