Artificial regeneration of Korean spruce in northeast China


Korean spruce (Picea koraiensis Nakai) has been included as a Chinese regeneration species since the 1960′s. In the 1970′s it became one of the four most important species in the northeast forest region of China. Korean spruce is a timber species with a wide range of adaptation, high survival rate, and few diseases or pests. Studies of 30-year trials show that the regeneration of korean spruce is successful and has a prospective future.
