Thinning Response and Growth Trends of Seeded Scots Pine Stands at the Arctic Timberline

  title={Thinning Response and Growth Trends of Seeded Scots Pine Stands at the Arctic Timberline},
  author={Martti Varmola and Hannu Salminen},
Growth patterns and reactions of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) to thinning in extremely harsh climatic conditions were studied in two seeded Scots pine stands located on the arctic timberline. Coniferous trees usually do not form closed stands at the timberline, but occur only in scattered tree groups. The trial was established in two stands in 1985–1986 when the trees were at an age of 47 and 56 years and an average dominant height of 6.0–6.9 m. The trial was remeasured in 1998.
