Name of project:Technology of production of bare-rooted broad-leaved saplings in forest nurseries and the use of this special planting stock in forest regeneration
Year:2012 - 2016
Co-researcher foreign:Česká zemědělská univerzita v Praze

Description of project

The aims of the project are as follows: (1) to define the principles of a production of large-sized, bare-rooted planting stock (new-generation saplings) with high-quality root systems achieved by intensive mechanised root pruning and make the technology accessible to common forest nurseries (2) to test and technologically improve the mechanised way of planting the new-generation saplings on forest sites and compare the mechanised and manual planting of this large-sized planting stock. In a broader context the project will intensify and make more efficient the production and planting of broad-leaved trees and thus it could contribute to species diversification and stabilisation of forest stands.
