Dendrobiology 2004, vol. 51supplement: 35-39 Full text (pdf)
Abstract: The study examines the factors involved in the successful artificial regeneration of Norway spruce Picea abies (L.) Karst. by plantation or sowing in wood left behind in mountain forest stands. The issues studied are as follows: regeneration in stumps,trunks and disks (logs); regeneration in wood at various stages of decomposition; regeneration under the stand canopy and on clearings. The work brings a description of technological procedures to ensure success of this regeneration method.
Additional key words: Norway spruce, decomposing wood, regeneration
