Forestry Compendium

Comprehensive, encyclopedic resource for information on forestry

Changes to Compendia distribution data: the distribution tables, maps and references in datasheets have been restructured to handle the data better for updating and align with a geographic standard. Further details are available on the About page.

AbstractFull Text

During the last decades, several new and invasive tree pathogens have arrived in the northern Europe, damaging forest and verdant trees. New and invasive species (e.g. Lecanosticta acicola, Dothistroma septosporum, Diplodia sapinea, Hymenoscyphus fraxineus) are considered to cause economic loss and ...

AbstractFull Text

Airborne laser scanner (ALS) measurements from two test sites in Estonia were used to estimate forest canopy-base height (HVL). The ALS data was collected by Estonian Land Board using Leica ALS50-II scanner. The HVL was estimated by using mode value and standard deviation of the ALS pulse...

AbstractFull Text

The effect of drainage in peatland forests has been studied in Estonia but research on bog pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) stands is lacking and mixed opinions on the expediency of amelioration in this site type are found. In order to obtain more information on the post drainage effects, measurements...

AbstractFull Text

The height growth curves of Scotch Pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) stands were simulated for stands with initial height asymptote H∞ 15 m, 25 m and 35 m and with linear change p of the potency of growth conditions 0.5% yr-1, 0.2% yr-1, 0.1% yr-1, -0.2% yr-1 and with no change as the base. Different...

Altogether 197 grafts were studied in Pauska seed orchard in South-Estonia to find out the effect of the fertilization on Norway spruce grafts. The fertilization trials were carried out in May 1988 and 2006. The grafts of 4 different clones with 5 different fertilization treatments (N, P, K, NPK,...

AbstractFull Text

Estonian forest management is based traditionally on long rotations. Recent trends in wood industry and wood consumption promote also production of small-size timber for bioenergy and timber products. This opens a discussion about shorter rotations and intensive forest management again in Estonia....

AbstractFull Text

Relationships between the volume growth of mixed stands and their species composition were analyzed in order to examine the so-called "mixture effect" on stand productivity. The influence of co-species was studied using multiple linear regression analysis. Stand level basal area and height growth...

AbstractFull Text

Soil respiration resulting from microbial and root respiration is a major component of the forest carbon cycle. The response of soil respiration to varying environmental factors (soil temperature and soil moisture) was studied in a Norway spruce chronosequence composed of four age classes (4, 27,...

The aim of the study was to investigate the effect of fertilization on the growth of Silver birch Betula pendula Roth and Scots pine Pinus sylvestris L. seedlings on a cutaway peatland (Ulila, 58degrees22′N, 26°26′E). Five treatments were established: wood ash (10 000 and 5000 kg/ha), peat and wood ...

AbstractFull Text

Several studies about stands growing on abandoned agricultural lands are induced by extensive afforestation of agricultural lands and more intensive use of biomass. Overview of above-ground biomass production of grey alder, hybrid alder and silver birch young stands growing on former agricultural...
