  1. Recovery of <em>Ocotea bullata</em> (Lauraceae) after Fire Damage

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Forestry Journal
    Fire damage to Ocotea bullata (Lauraceae) may result in crown death but survival and eventual recovery is possible by means of shoot formation. Survival is due to the above-average thickness of the bark of O. bullata and possibly the isolating...
  2. Management of the Coppice Regeneration of <em>Ocotea bullata</em> (Lauraceae)

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Forestry Journal
    The effects of protecting the coppice shoots of Ocotea bullata (Lauraceae) stumps against bushbuck (Tragelaphus scriptus) browsing were studied. Apart from reducing damage to coppice shoots, protection led to a decrease in the number of shoots per coppice cluster, a...
  3. Evaluating Forestry Land During Inflationary Times

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Forestry Journal
    The Land Expectation Value criterion has been used since 1849 to calculate the value of forestry land. It was, however, developed in a static financial environment, and is no longer suitable for land valuation in today's dynamic financial environment. This...
  4. Micropropagation <em>of Eucalyptus radiata ssp. radiata</em> Using Explants from Mature and Coppice Material

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Forestry Journal
    Nodes from young field-grown coppice regrowth and branches of a mature tree of Eucalyptus radiata ssp. radiata were cultured on a MS medium containing BA and NAA. BA at 0,5 mg/ℓ and NAA at 0,01-0,1 mg/ℓ were most effective in...
  5. The regrowth of <em>Colophospermum mopane</em> following clearing

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    The recovery of cleared Colophospermum mopane thicket in the eastern Transvaal lowveld, to a level where its effect on grass production is similar to that in the pre‐cleared state, occurs within fourteen years. Based on certain assumptions, the ‘effective duration’...

    First rotation <em>Eucalyptus macarthurii</em> cut stump control in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: The Southern African Forestry Journal
    Many cold tolerant eucalypts, E. macarthurii in particular, coppice vigorously following harvesting, and in contrast to E. grandis are proving difficult to kill by existing cut stump control methods. Based on past research, selected cut stump treatments were tested on...
  8. Control of <em>Eucalyptus grandis</em> cut-stumps of single-stem origin

    Control of <em>Eucalyptus grandis</em> cut-stumps of single-stem origin

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: The Southern African Forestry Journal
    Four methods to control coppice re-growth on single-stem cut-stump Eucalyptus grandis stools were tested in the Zululand region of KwaZulu-Natal. The methods used were the burning of the plantation residue as opposed to a no-burn control, the application of triclopyr...
