Modelling the radial and longitudinal variation in wood density and its sensitivity to climate in black spruce (Picea mariana (Mill.) B.S.P.)
Wood density variation affects structural timber performance and is correlated with different sources (genetic diversity, stand dynamics and climatic effects) which, to date, have not been comprehensively quantified in ...
Mechanical properties (MOE and MOR) of glulam
Glue-laminated (glulam) timber has strong mechanical properties and is a great building material. It is composed of small diameter wood. There has been a shortage of large dimensional lumber for construction projects. ...
Quantitative metrics of deadwood decay classes as a function of moisture regime and tree species
The patterns and rates of decomposition of dead woody debris (DWD) in the boreal ecosystem throughout the wood decay process have been hypothesized to vary across moisture regimes and between species. A fundamental aspect ...
Assessment of black spruce portfolio trial survival and growth and implications for reforestation under climate change
The purpose of this study is to assess the performance of black spruce seedlings at a genetic trial designed to select seed sources adapted to several climate change scenarios. Height variability among trees is attributed ...
Early growth responses of black spruce seed sources selected for reforestation under climate change scenarios in Ontario
Study area : Northern boreal forest: (Northeastern - Sault Ste. Marie region) ; (Northwestern : Dryden and Kakabeka regions)
Interfamily variation in wood quality of black spruce in a northwestern Ontario progeny trial
The right trees for replanting must be selected to ensure optimal future forest conditions. Based on desired future outcomes, various progenies can be selected to suit these needs. In Canada, black spruce (Picea mariana), ...
Ecotypic variation of black spruce in northwestern Ontario
The success of reforestation can be improved by selecting the appropriate seed source for the site type. However, not much is known about the differences in using upland versus lowland black spruce seed sources when ...
