Distribution of chestnut (Castanea sativa Mill.) forests in Spain: possible ecological criteria for quality and management (focusing on timber coppices)



Distribution of chestnut (Castanea sativa Mill.) forests in Spain: possible ecological criteria for quality and management (focusing on timber coppices)



Forest Snow and Landscape Research 76(3): 477-481



The literature dealing with Spanish chestnut (Castanea sativa) coppices from 1990 until 2001 is reviewed. Assuming that the basal area and Hart's indexes are the best parameters to identify the optimal environmental conditions for chestnut trees, the best ecological conditions for sweet chestnuts are given according to Spanish districts. It is concluded that it is possible to increase the surface of chestnut forests in western Spain.
