Managing spruce budworm in Minnesota's forests The eastern spruce budworm (Choristoneura fumiferana) is a native forest insect of concern across Minnesota’s coniferous forests. Spruce budworm is responsible for defoliating and/or killing vast acreages of balsam fir and spruce annually in Minnesota. Despite its name, balsam fir trees are most susceptible to budworm .

Laboratory revealed that one was a black spruce, the other a white spruce. Thus, 34 white spruce, 33 black spruce, 33 balsam fir, and 31 red spruce trees were sampled. The origin of the sample trees by county and state is shown in table 1. above stump spruce (Ft) 6 Red White Balsam spruce spruce fir. The goal of this study was to describe white spruce (Picea glauca) and balsam fir (Abies balsamea) recolonization in a southern boreal forest (climax type balsam fir/white birch (Betula papyrifera)) in NW Quebec, destroyed in by an intense fire which burned 1 ha of forest in the province, and ha within the township of Hebecourt (the study area).
tures with other conifers such as black spruce, red spruce, balsam fir, and jack pine, or in mixtures with aspen and paper birch. As a pioneer type, it also forms pure stands in abandoned fields in New England and the Maritime provinces of Canada. In western Can-ada it is found as pure stands or in mixtures with aspen, birch, and lodgepole pine. Across the US Lakes States, black spruce is near its southern and western range limit. Black spruce can occur under a variety of environmental conditions in both pure and mixed composition stands. Black spruce is the dominant overstory species in the black spruce/feather moss-lichen forest type.

Diameter distributional trends within mixed black-spruce/ balsam-fir and pure black-spruce stand types. For. Ecol. Manage., This study describes and compares (i) the diameter distribution of black spruce (Picea mariana (Mill.) B.S.P.) and balsam fir (Abies balsamea (L.) by: These results indicated that forest types and competition will determine the impact of climate on the growth of black spruce trees.
Climate sensitive growth functions developed for black spruce in this study will be useful in modeling and managing pure and mixed stands of black spruce across the western boreal by: 2. The black spruce forest type is mainly found on histosols, or soils with peat and muck, in the Lake States (Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan).
It is also common on drier soils in mixture with other species. On organic soil, black spruce mainly grows in pure stands. It can also be mixed with tamarack, northern white cedar and balsam fir.

Forest Cited by: Results indicated that both species within mixed stands, and black spruce within both stand types, had similar distribution trends, i.e., initially reverse.
The boreal ecocline (ca 49°N) between the southern mixedwood (dominated by balsam fir) and the northern coniferous bioclimatic domain (dominated by black spruce) may be explained by a northward decrease of balsam fir regeneration, explaining the gradual shift to black spruce dominance.
7, sample plots, with absence of major disturbances, were. Black spruce is a small, narrow evergreen tree with a spire-like crown. It has descending branches, with dark, bluish-green needles, and upturned ends. Lower limbs sweep the ground.
It is an excellent choice for cold northern climates and tolerant of wet sites. Four uneven-aged black spruce-balsam fir stands were selected for the study and 15 black spruce and 15 balsam fir trees were sampled in each stand, distributed between a treated and a control area.
Radial growth, latewood proportion, ring density, tracheid length and the moduli of elasticity and rupture were measured in each tree. Environments favouring pure black spruce stands at the end of succession in this region are often less productive than those favouring black spruce -balsam fir.
As balsam fir was ingrown, one could argue that the competition exerted on balsam fir was more varied and thus similar to that what is observed in mixed and/or heterogeneous stands. It was therefore expected that better fit statistics would be obtained using DDC as they integrate the structural variation within the stand (Pretzsch ).
Black spruce communities are widely distributed in boreal Alaska. Around 30% to 40% of Alaska's landscape is boreal forest , and black spruce is the most common boreal forest type [23,].Black spruce communities are especially common in interior Alaska, occupying 39% to 44% of that region .Alaskan black spruce communities typically occur on cold, poorly.
We used a hierarchical approach to examine patterns of black spruce and balsam fir wood density across Newfoundland. Wood density measurements were aggregated at ring, tree, and plot levels. Portions of the variance in wood density at the different levels were explained by predictor variables at multiple levels of a forest structural hierarchy.
Red spruce (Picearubens Sarg.), black spruce (Piceamariana (Mill.)B.S.P.), and balsam fir (Abiesbalsamea (L.) Mill.) seedlings were root inoculated with tomato mosaic virus, potted, and maintained in a cold virus was detected by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay in root extracts of several inoculated seedlings of each species 6–12 months postinoculation.
White spruce requires little maintenance and is well suited for use in shelterbelts, privacy screens, hedges, and as an ornamental in an urban setting. Balsam Fir - best known as a "Christmas tree" - doesn't just look great in living rooms; it's a terrific tree for your yard too.
Black Spruce is a medium-sized coniferous tree that tolerates wet ground better than most–if not all–spruces. It has a characteristic straight trunk and a narrow crown. Balsam Fir - best known as a "Christmas tree" - doesn't just look great in living rooms; it's a terrific tree for your yard too.
Fir mortality increased with the number of years of severe defoliation and was always greater than that of spruce, which appeared to be weakly affected by SBW defoliation. In mixed spruce-fir stands, the total volume of mortality decreased almost linearly with increasing proportions of black spruce.
Birds: Spruce grouse feed entirely on spruce needles in winter. Chickadees, nuthatches, crossbills, grosbeaks, and pine siskin extract seeds from open spruce cones and eat seeds off the ground. It also provides good cover for spruce grouse. In the Lake States, spruce grouse are dependent upon black spruce stands for much of their habitat needs.
The contact angle method was used to determine the wettability of red spruce (Picea rubens Sarg.) and balsam fir [Abies balsamea (L.) Mill.] foliage in subalpine sites (– m above sea level) at three locations in northern New England, USA (Camels Hump in Vermont and Mt.
Moosilauke and Mt. Washington in New Hampshire).The dependence of contact angle (θ) on. balsam, however, spruce may be severely injured or even killed. Ob servations indicate that in mixed stands containing a large proportion of balsam the spruce is likely to be defoliated.
Spruce as a rule is better able to recover from defoliation than balsam fir, owing in part. Pure stands of balsam fir or stands in which balsam fir is the major component of growing stock make up the forest cover type Balsam Fir (Society of American Foresters Type 5) (10).
Balsam fir is also a major component in two other eastern forest cover types: Red Spruce-Balsam Fir (Type 33) and Paper Birch-Red Spruce-Balsam Fir (Type 35). Red spruce trees inhabit eastern North America. Perhaps it’s most well-known use is its effectiveness as a tonewood, which makes it a perfect choice for making guitars and violins.
The tree is, however, susceptible to windthrow and acid rain, both of which can damage it rather easily. Scientific Classification Kingdom Plantae Division Pinophyta Class Pinopsida [ ].The average maximum age for black spruce is about years, but ages up to years have been reported.
Management Black spruce grows more slowly than many associated trees and shrubs, and mature trees in spruce-fir stands apparently respond better to release than white spruce and subalpine fir. Many.Black Spruce Essential Oil Research, Facts, and Studies.
There are very few research articles available for black spruce oil. For instance, searching "black spruce essential oil" brings up one article on PubMed at the time of this writing, and using the botanical name comes up with none.
