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

The production of poles in Chile is done by choosing trees specially selected for that purpose, however, the forestry that is massively applied is oriented to the simultaneous production of pruned, sawn and pulpable logs. Silviculture for the specific production of poles in Chile is a technically...

AbstractFull Text

In Galicia (NW Spain) the productivity of the silvopastoral systems can be limited by the high soil acidity, which decreases the availability of nutrients to the pasture and trees. Liming and fertilisation with sewage sludge could improve the soil fertility, favouring the tree growth and the...

AbstractFull Text

The aim of this research is to determine morphological properties of fibers of Radiata pine wood exotically grown in Turkey and suitability of these properties for pulping. The test trees were collected from Kaynarca (Adapazarı-Turkey) growing region. The fiber lengths, fiber diameters, lumen...

AbstractFull Text

Time consumption and productivity of a Valmet 890.3 8 wheel forwarder were evaluated on an Australian radiata pine clearfell site with a slope of 21 to 45% (12 to 24°). Cycle time was significantly related to extraction distance. Productivity was significantly related to extraction distance and...

AbstractFull Text

The Yield-SAFE is a biophysical model to predict the long-term production according to light and water availability in exclusively agricultural and forest systems and also in agroforestry systems. The productivity estimated with the Yield-SAFE model can be used to determine the Land Equivalent...

AbstractFull Text

Over recent years there has been increasing interest in the harvesting of forest biomass destined for energy production. However, there are a number of limitations with respect to the efficiency and profitability of such exploitations and these have implications for the future development of the...

AbstractFull Text

Harvester-forwarder systems are the predominant ground-based harvest system in use in many parts of the world, including Australia. Whereas harvesters can operate on slopes up to 60% (31 degrees), forwarders are restricted to slopes of 45% (24 degrees) due to their high centre of gravity and lower...

AbstractFull Text

A forestry nursery in Tokoroa, New Zealand grows approximately 3 million Radiata pine seedlings per annum of which about 65% (2 million) are of suitable quality for forestry plantations. The high rejection rate of 35% was attributed to poorly trained, seasonal workers and unsophisticated equipment. ...
