This study examined whether the morphological attributes of Austrian pine (Pinus nigra ssp. nigra var. nigra Arnold) seedlings measured in the nursery could be used to forecast subsequent field performance over an extended time frame. Seedlings from three seed sources were produced in two types of containers and in bareroot seedbeds. These seedling...

Projections of the regional climate model for Southeast Europe generally predict an increasing of temperature and a decrease in precipitation, with some local variations. Higher frequency of extreme weather events and increased flooding can also be expected. This climate change will, among other things, result in changes in habitats and species dis...

Full-text available
Relation between genetic diversity and mass production of forest reproductive material is discussed in a holistic manner. In industrial forest plantations, narrow genetic diversity is desirable and reproductive material is produced at clone level. On the other hand, in conservation forestry a wide genetic diversity is imperative. Beside management...

Root development is critical to successful establishment after seedlings are outplanted on a forest restoration site. There is an array of practices nursery practitioners and foresters use to ensure seedlings develop quality root systems to aid in outplanting success. To this end, a select number of topics are examined on how they effect root syste...
Article
Full-text available
The choice of revegetating via direct seeding or planting nursery-grown seedlings influences the potential stresses suffered by seedlings such as herbivory and drought. The outcome of the balance between both revegetation methods may ultimately depend on how species identity and traits such as seed and seedling size interact with environmental cond...

Article
Full-text available
Seedling planting plays a key role in active forest restoration and regeneration of managed stands. Plant attributes at outplanting can determine tree seedling survival and consequently early success of forest plantations. While many studies show that large seedlings of the same age within a species have higher survival than small ones, others repo...

Pinus nigra is one of the most widely used tree species for reforestation within its geographical distribution, as well as being a potential substitute for other tree species in Central Europe under future climate scenarios. P. nigra is transplanted into the field as two-year or three-year old seedlings because of its relatively low growth rate in...

Planting trees is popular, widely accepted and supported, resulting with many initiatives and commitments around the globe. At the same time, planting trees is questioned more and more and receive a lot of criticism. In this paper we consider the arguments of both sides and discuss them using a scientific evidence. Determination of restoration oppo...

Forests in the Republic of Serbia cover 2,252,000 hа, 29% of the country's area. Reforestation is, however, small‐scale despite strategic documents encouraging more forest cover. From 2004‐2013, annual reforestation and afforestation averaged 1,671 and 1,901 ha, respectively, mostly because of reduced investment in forestry. Because funding is limi...
