Beech, Fagus sylvatica L., propagation by cuttings

Acta Pruhoniciana ( 62): 31-46

Beech, Fagus sylvatica L., propagation by cuttings

Semi-lignified cuttings from 3- to 7-year-old seedlings were given a basal dip in 1 or 2% IBA in talc. They rooted successfully in shade under intermittent mist. The rooted cuttings overwintered best in deep frames under glass with polystyrene mats producing 15% translucence. By this method a 60-85% yield of 2-year-old plants was achieved.

Vegetative propagation is of great scientific interest with respect to trials with clone materials of genetic homogeneity. It could be realized through establishing tissue cultures, though it would be very expensive. The theoretical and trial expe...

Vegetative propagation of forest tree species is of great importance not only for breeding programmes but also for the conservation of valuable populations of tree species. Important is also a possibility of improving the genetic quality of establ...
