Reaction individuelle de hetres (Fagus silvatica L) d'ages divers a diverses intensites d'eclaircies

Abstract : A thinning experiment in 37 to 70-year-old Beech (Fagus silvatica L.) stands shows that, even at late ages, crowns react quickly and vigorously to thinning. This crown development in tum, along with a secondary increase of the vegetation period, accounts for important gains in breast height diameter growth. Thus, it is recommanded that thinnings be heavy and early in Beech; the selection of crop trees seems possible, even before the age of 40; however, as social regressions have been observed in the youngest plots, reselection may prove to be necessary by the time of the second thinning. These results are based on observations on small plots : they should also be confirmed on larger stands.
