Effect of forest decline on old Norway spruce in the Central Harz region

Beitrage fur die Forstwirtschaft 25(2): 59-61

Effect of forest decline on old Norway spruce in the Central Harz region

Three stems of Picea abies 100 years old and exhibiting all the symptoms of decline ('tinsel syndrome' (long-hanging branches), 'window effect' and needle yellowing) were examined as regards needle colour, needle chemistry, and height, diameter and volume increment, using a spline function adapted for this region of eastern Germany. Forest decline has not had an adverse effect on increment.
