1 Progress report: Lithuania Vaidotas Lygis Lithuanian Forest Seed Farming and Tree Breeding Service

2 PLANNED...

3 Kėdainiai Forest Enterprise: The propagation of hardwoods

4 PLANNED ACTIVITIES (as in PHARE project) Activity 1. Review on the present deciduous forest management practises. Activity 2. Survey and registration of the valuable natural and planted hardwood sites. Activity 3. Establishment of the demonstration paths for showing of various hardwood biotopes and examples of the silvicultural management. Activity 4. Establishment and maintenance of the pilot hardwood plantations for demonstration of conservation and use of hardwood variability. Activity 5. Courses for forest owners, farmers and other interested public groups. Activity 6. Meetings and international seminar.

5 PLANNED ACTIVITIES (as in PHARE project) Activity 1. Review on the present deciduous forest management practises. Activity 2. Survey and registration of the valuable natural and planted hardwood sites. Activity 3. Establishment of the demonstration paths for showing of various hardwood biotopes and examples of the silvicultural management.

6 PRESENT ACTIVITIES Activity 1. Review on the present deciduous forest management practises.

7 Activity 1. Summarizing of data on existing experimental plantations Investigation of the present hardwood industry activities, products, and recent technologies Propagation of current requirements for the forest reproductive material, based on recent EU regulations

8 PRESENT ACTIVITIES Activity 2. Survey and registration of the valuable natural and planted hardwood sites.

9 Activity 2. training of local foresters in identification and general understanding of species and habitats location and mappig of valuable hardwood objects: key habitats, gene reserves, demonstration sites...

10 PRESENT ACTIVITIES Activity 3. Establishment of the demonstration paths

11 Šėta forest district, Kėdainiai Forest Enterprise Demonstration path in seed reserve of Quercus robur FOREST MANAGEMENT PRACTISES Activity 3.

12 Šėta forest district, Kėdainiai Forest Enterprise 1. Plot of good natural regeneration of oak Demonstration path in seed reserve of Quercus robur Activity 3.

13 Šėta forest district, Kėdainiai Forest Enterprise 1. Plot of good natural regeneration of oak 2. Planned oak plantation. To be stocked 1x2 m (without soil preparation, with protective shields) Demonstration path in seed reserve of Quercus robur Activity 3.

14 Šėta forest district, Kėdainiai Forest Enterprise 1. Plot of good natural regeneration of oak 2. Planned oak plantation. To be stocked 1x2 m (without soil preparation, with protective shields) 3. Plot, left for natural regeneration (without soil preparation) Demonstration path in seed reserve of Quercus robur Activity 3.

15 Šėta forest district, Kėdainiai Forest Enterprise 1. Plot of good natural regeneration of oak 2. Planned oak plantation. To be stocked 1x2 m (without soil preparation, with protective shields) 3. Plot, left for natural regeneration (without soil preparation) 4. Planned oak plantation. To be stocked 2x3 m (into soil prepared with disc harrow, with protective shields) Demonstration path in seed reserve of Quercus robur Activity 3.

To be stocked 1x2 m (without soil preparation and protective shields) 6. Continuous ploughing – to promote natural regeneration of oak. Sowing by acorns in part of the plot Demonstration path in seed reserve of Quercus robur Activity 3.

Plot of good natural regeneration of oak Demonstration path in seed reserve of Quercus robur Activity 3.

19 Planting material will originate from the local seed trees: Šėta forest district, Kėdainiai Forest Enterprise all mapped numbered phenotypic characteristics evaluated.

20 M 1:3000 Start of exposition Demonstration path in seed reserve of Quercus robur Seed trees Šėta forest district, Kėdainiai Forest Enterprise

21 Seed trees selected in gene reserve of Q. robur More demonstration objects... Examples of forest management in the gene reserve Šėta forest district, Kėdainiai Forest Enterprise

22 No financial support as last years PHARE project has not been granted Incomprehension of the AH projects benefits by state and subordinate forest officials, private forest owners, and hardwood processing companies Inactivity of Supreme forest authorities Lack of experienced and competent English-speaking staff in the region Access to specific forest inventory data is limited PROBLEMS

23 PERSPECTIVES ? Some work could be done with the support of Kėdainiai Forest Enterprise High economical potential of the hardwoods is at least acknowledged by state and Supreme forest authorities This years PHARE project will be granted (?) The work must go on!
