AbstractFull Text

The effect of root reinforcement depends on the biotechnical characteristics of the root system including the tensile strength of individual roots, the root density and the distribution of the root system in the soil. This research was conducted in the Hyrcanian forest in Iran, where shallow...

AbstractFull Text

Yew (Taxus baccata L.) is one of the most important and threatened tree species in the Arasbaran region of northwestern Iran. To understand the natural stand structure of yew forests to inform forest management, we assessed the structural characteristics and composition of yew communities using the ...

AbstractFull Text

Renewal of wood volume by 3P method has been suggested to replace the 100% renewal method to reduce field work and costs. In this method and following selection of sample trees from marked trees, the volume of industrial trunks and firewood in trees are field-measured. In order to evaluate and...

AbstractFull Text

Urban forests play a key role in CO2 reduction and consequently in controlling climate change. Therefore, quantifying carbon storage is essential to understand the role of urban forests in reducing atmospheric pollution. This study quantified carbon storage in the Abidar urban forest of the...

AbstractFull Text

We investigated the growth parameters of 20-year-old plantations of Pinus nigra J.F. Arnold and Picea abies (Linnaeus) H. Karsten and their impact on understory woody plants and we compared them with a natural stand in above-timberline mountain areas. 30 sample plots (each of 400 m2 in area) were...
