Effect of different pruning intensities in young Pinus sylvestris trees on variation in wood increment during the first decade after treatment

, : Effect of different pruning intensities in young Pinus sylvestris trees on variation in wood increment during the first decade after treatment. Prace z Zakresu Nauk Lesnych 1989; 64: 91-96

Variation in width of annual rings and of earlywood and latewood zones are analysed in unpruned trees and trees moderately (crowns shortened by 33%) or heavily (crowns shortened by 67%) pruned at 14 yr old in a stand in Zielonka experimental forest, Poland.

Hardness was measured at a series of points 0.5-4.5 cm above and below pruned and unpruned knots at different heights (0-2, 2.1-4 and >4 m) in the stems of 37-yr-old trees from a stand of site class Ia in Poland. Hardness values were reduced ar...
