The effects of tending cuttings on yield and value changes in black locust (Robinia pseudoacacia L.) stands: a case study
Published May 20, 2020
111-113

Thinning experiments in black locust (Robinia pseudoacacia L.) stands have been carried out for many years in Hungary. This species has great economic importance in the timber supply of the country. This paper evaluates the effects of tending cuttings in two aspects: the effect on yield and stand value. The case study has proved that in bla...ck locust stands tending cuttings can not increase the periodic total production but the stem-quality index can be increased by 2%.

Angle-count sampling method for estimating forest stand volume – a practical approach
Published December 1, 2020
99-102

Point sampling, which is also known as angle-count sampling (ACS), can be considered an efficient way of estimating the basal area and volume of forest stands. It is possible to use it in forest management: providing more accurate estimates (precision <10%) of  site and stand characteristics needed for management planning. 20 black locu...st (Robinina pseudoacacia L.) stands were selected at final cutting age to determine the regeneration criteria based on their total volume. It was verified that at P=5% there was no difference between the main volume values of stands indicated in the relevant forest plans as well as calculated by the ACS method.
