Establishment of mixed stands of broadleaves and conifers beneath the shelter of old Scots pine stands

Establishment of mixed stands of broadleaves and conifers beneath the shelter of old Scots pine stands

As part of a project to convert old Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) stands on sandy brown soils in the Berlin region into mixed stands of hardwood and conifers without clear-felling, studies were made of the effects of various canopy densities on underplanted Quercus petraea, Fagus sylvatica, Carpinus betulus and Pinus sylvestris.
