AbstractFull Text

In this literature review, the quantity of drained peatland forests, the present state of their growing stock and the needs for further drainage operations and discussed in southern Lapland in Finland were analysed and presented. In addition, the possibilities for wood procurement operations during ...

AbstractFull Text

Stem cracks are damaging for timber quality and can reduce the monetary value of a tree both directly and indirectly: serving as gateway for fungal infections. Aim of the study was to assess the influence of tree dimensions and seed origin on the frequency of stem crack for Norway spruce. The study ...

AbstractFull Text

The study results indicated that the share of manual bucking on Norway spruce (Picea abies L. Karst.) log section was, on average, 46% and on Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) log section 67%. There was statistically significant positive correlation between the shares of manual bucking of pine and...

AbstractFull Text

The forest industry is aware of dimensional and qualitative differences existing in the forest and is more willing to incorporate information about forest composition and potential markets into its production planning. Scots pines growing in Finland are known to possess huge quality and value...

AbstractFull Text

Forestry-drained peatlands in the boreal region are currently undergoing restoration in order to bring these ecosystems closer to their natural (undrained) state. Drainage affects the methane (CH4) dynamics of a peatland, often changing sites from CH4 sources to sinks. Successful restoration of a...

AbstractFull Text

Downy birch has shown potential for fairly high biomass production (3-4 oven-dry tonnes (ODt) per ha per year) on cutaway peatlands, with only minor investments. There is however a lack in knowledge of the operational cost for harvesting these stands. The objective was therefore to construct time...

AbstractFull Text

The aim of this study was to find the net energy and energy ratios for the recovery of Scots pine and Norway spruce stump-root systems when clearing land for cultivations. The energy analyses were carried out for direct and indirect energy under Finnish conditions. In the base study case for direct ...

AbstractFull Text

In Finland, ditch network maintenance (DNM) is carried out annually on 60-70,000 ha of drained peatland to promote tree growth for forestry purposes. However, it is important to avoid ditching that contributes little to the stand growth and productivity, both to improve the economical profitability ...
