Short rotation forests (SRF) are developing continuously in Romania. Several studies have been undertaken to identify the clones with high productivity and suitable technologies. The aim of this study was to register the annual increments in diameter, height and volume in an experimental poplar crops with a short-term rotation of 5 years. The poplar cultures are composed from 6 types of hybrid poplar clones (AF2, AF6, Monviso, A4A, Pannonia and Max4) with a density of 2667 trees ha<sup>-1</sup>. The research results show a clear differentiation among clones’ increments. The highest increments were obtained with AF2 and AF6 clones in five years, with almost 0.038 m<sup>3</sup> an<sup>-1</sup>. The lowest increment was observed for Max4 clone with 0.028 m<sup>3</sup>.</p> 2020-08-07T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2015 Bucovina Forestieră
