Grazing on a man-made todomatsu forest

, : Grazing on a man-made todomatsu forest. Journal of the Japanese Forestry Society 69(3): 84-87

Plots in a 5.21-ha Abies sachalinensis plantation established in Hokkaido in 1969 were grazed by cattle for 14 yr (until 1983) at a rate of 100 cow days/ha p.a. Tree ht. and diam. growth was greater in the grazed plots, probably because of the effects of the cattle manure. Av. annual yield of fodder grasses, mainly Dactylis glomerata and Poa pratensis, was about 12 t/ha. During the first year, damage to young trees on the grazed plots was about 25-45%, falling rapidly to negligible after 5 yr.
