NRS Forest Science Seminar series: Developing mixed conifer forests in Britain: from policy to practice
Results from FR’s long-term mixture experiments show that the productivity of the mixture can be better than predicted from pure stands of the admixed species. Other experiments indicate that admixtures with native broadleaves such as birch can be created using a group pattern of mixture which is robust to inter-species competition. These results can be used to develop guidance for conifer mixtures for British forestry and sustain delivery of ecosystem services in a changing climate.
