Black walnut (Juglans nigra L.) is a light-demanding, competition-intolerant, and tall forest tree species, introduced in Europe from North America at the beginning of the seventeenth century. It has an important economic role in Europe for producing wood and fruits, in agroforestry systems, as an ornamental tree for parks and avenues, for rehabili...

Black locust (Robinia pseudoacacia L.), a species native to the eastern North America, was introduced to Europe probably in 1601 and currently extends over 2.3 × 106 ha. It has become naturalized in all sub-Mediterranean and temperate regions rivaling Populus spp. as the second most planted broadleaved tree species worldwide after Eucalyptus spp. T...

Ecology and management of northern red oak (Quercus rubra L. syn. Q. borealis F. Michx.) in Europe: a review Northern red oak (Quercus rubra L. syn. Q. borealis F. Michx.) is a valuable broadleaved tree species originating from the eastern half of the USA and Canada. It was introduced to Europe in 1691 and currently covers over 350 000 ha, being fo...

Europe has a history rich in examples of successful and problematic introductions of trees with a native origin outside of Europe (non-native trees, NNT). Many international legal frameworks such as treaties and conventions and also the European Union have responded to the global concern about potential negative impacts of NNT that may become invas...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
Non-native tree species are widely used in forest plantations and agroforestry systems worldwide for their often-high productivity and performance compared to native trees. In addition, they have been and are introduced and used for multiple reasons, such as gardening, protective functions, arboreta, erosion control and for increasing the forest ar...
Article
Full-text available
Black locust (Robinia pseudoacacia L.) was the first North-American tree species imported to Europe at the beginning of the seventeenth century. It is commonly planted worldwide because of its adaptability to environmental stresses, its valuable wood, easy propagation, frequent and abundant seed production, excellent coppicing, high seedling surviv...
Article
This paper discusses the early silviculture of silver fir (Abies alba Mill.), a major softwood in Romania covering more than 294,000 ha. Three research plots (DRP1, DRP2 and DRP3) were established in a 25-year-old silver fir-dominated stand in May 2012. In DRP1 and DRP2, heavy cleaning-respacing were carried out while DRP3 was kept as a control. Af...

Article
Full-text available
Willow short rotation coppice was developed in Europe in the last decades due to increased of renewable energy importance. In order to identify and produce fast-growing willow, well adapted to a wide range of environment and also to pest and disease, research have been made. In Romania willow short rotation coppice has been developed from 2005, exc...
Article
Full-text available
In Romania, the interest for biomass production from short rotation coppice (SRC) is at beginning, being focused on the culture of poplar and willow. The high productions of biomass, which can be obtained from these cultures, are affected by numerous diseases and harmful insects, with negative effects on viability and vitality of these cultures. In...
Article
Full-text available
The use of bioenergy are increasing in many European countries and an important role will be played by biomass produced in willow SRC. Short Rotation Coppice (SRC) willow was developed in Sweden in 1970 and it is cultivated for the production of wood chips. In Romania there are not more than 800 hectares, half of them are in Banat area. In this con...

Tilia spp. (lime trees) as ornamental trees have a privileged place in the European mythology and traditions and this is a reason of their constant presence in the urban landscape. Lime trees are in general very resistant to biotic and abiotic stress, although some sanitary problems may occur (e.g. aphids and other related organisms). Tilia spp. ar...

In order to evaluate the quality of groundwater of periurban area of Timisoara, 6 shallow wells have been monitored. They are located at a distance of 15 km around the center of the city. Monitoring was done over 3 years in the period 2007-2009 by taking samples at intervals of three months. This paper presents the results of statistical analysis o...

Black locust in a species from North America which found in Romania another home.. This species was used not only for afforestation and reforestation on sandy soil but also on degraded land. Fourteen years ago, on sterile dump Cocoreni from Rovinari Basin, forest culture with black locust has been installed. In order to put in evidence the growth o...

To achieve the proposed objectives researches were conducted in 16 experimental blocks where intensive treatments were applied. These experimental blocks were located in all forest formations and geographic areas where these treatments have a high percent of application Measurements and observations concerning regeneration, particular the regenerat...

In forestry, great importance is given to wood apparent density commonly known as wood compactness. The researches were developed considering five black locust stands. For each population tree cores have been taken in order to determine wood density in anhydrous state as a ratio between mass and volume of wood samples in anhydrous state, convention...

To achieve the proposed objectives there have been conducted researches in 18 permanent experimental blocks and 7 itinerary experimental blocks located in all types of intensive treatment. These experimental blocks were located in all forest formations and geographic areas where these treatments have a high percent of application. Annual inventorie...

The perimeter improvement meets anthropogenic degraded lands through spoil mounding with sterile raw resulting from mining activity. These lands are unproductive, have an unaesthetic, affecting the beauty of landscape, and are sources of pollution to adjacent land and nearby waters by washing taluses, and movement of soil particles by wind infertil...

Japanese Rose is a species whose propagation by division or seeds are quite difficult. Propagation by cuttings is an alternative for obtaining seedlings of Kerria japonica. Research has aimed the influence of biostimulators on rooting. Two biostimulators have been used: Atonik, in solution with a dose of 1:4000, respectively 0.25 ml to 1 liter of w...

Coppicing is a very traditional way of forest management. It benefits from the vegetative regeneration of mostly broadleaf species. In most cases situated close to settlements this silvicultural regime provided among others small size wood, firewood, bark and fruits, and by this supported the livelihood of the rural population. It might have interest in small scale forest units namely near communities. Only recently coppice has been re-discovered because of its adaptive ecology, its stability and multiple benefits, notably its protection function, contribution to biodiversity. Traditional coppice management is often combined with special ownership and user rights regimes (e. g. commons) and this governance regime as an interesting alternative for small scale forestry.
