The objective of the study was to compare the performance of exotic (Eucalyptus grandis and Acacia saligna) and indigenous (Acacia polyacantha and Bauhinia thonningii) tree species in rehabilitating active gold mine tailings dump. The seedlings were produced in a nursery and transplanted onto the tailings dumps during the rainy season in the years 2000, 2001 and 2002.

Nov 22, 2017· Michiganders that purchase a real tree for the holidays each year are likely familiar with many of the "tried and true" Christmas tree species that usually appear at tree lots and choose-and-cut farms such as Fraser fir, balsam fir, Douglas fir and blue spruce. Michigan Christmas tree growers are an innovative lot, however, and consumers may find exotic or lesser-known species as they're ...

This paper examines the need for estimates of financial performance of individual tree species for promoting smallholder forestry on Leyte Island in the Philippines. Some initial estimates of net present value and internal rate of return are presented for smallholder plantings of indigenous and traditionally grown (but exotic) tree species.

The study took place in a woodlot known as the Hartley Wood, a unique old-growth tract of about 42 acres adjacent to what is now a municipal park, where the mostly oak, hickory and maple trees escaped the loggers' blades.A massive white oak that died there in 2000 was determined to have germinated around 1673. But likely because of its proximity to many landscaped homes, the Hartley Wood has ...

The exotic trees Ailanthus altissima, Robinia pseudoacacia, Acer negundo and Elaeagnus angustifolia coexist with the native trees Fraxinus angustifolia and Ulmus minor in river banks of central Spain. Similarly, the exotic trees Acacia dealbata and Eucalyptus globulus co-occur with the natives Quercus pyrenaica and Pinus pinaster in Northwest Spain.

Growth performance of tree species in this mixed forest aging 30 years was evaluated and the relative performance of species either endemic or exotic trees was compared. This simple method of assessing species-site match based on optimum growth and assessing best combination of native and exotic species will be useful

During 1988-1992, the growth performance of 7 exotic and 9 indigenous tree species in saline soil rehabilitation in the arid zone of central Turkana, north-western Kenya, where soil salinity affects 15-20% of the rangelands. was evaluated. The exotic species were: Prosopis chilensis, Parkinsonia aculeata, Leucaena leucocephala, Azadirachta indica, Acacia holosericea, and Atriplex spp ...

literature since traditionally exotic species have been preferred because of their high growth rate (Sarrailh and Ayrault, 2001). In conclusion, the study demonstrates that indigenous tree species compare favourably with exotic tree species in both survival rates and growth performance and can therefore be used in gold mine dump rehabilitation.

The gain in precision to explain the variation on tree growth performance as a function of a set of site indicators was analysed in a stepwise form, increasing its complexity and costs. Six native timber tree species were commonly found on farmer's fields and planted under different types of agroforestry systems. Localization of trees to be used for measurement was achieved through individual ...

The indigenous species in general had higher survival rates. Relative growth rates (RGR) of exotic and indigenous species did not differ (FT1 & FT2). Tree mortality was negatively correlated with RGR for exotic species in FT1 but not for indigenous ones. However, changes in plant performance were not in response to salinity alone.
