Abstract

This paper shows the results after 12 years growth in a provenance trial with Norway spruce at Naessja, county of Gaestrikland in central Sweden. The trial was established in a randomized block design with four replicates and plots with 25 trees. The spacing was 0.6 m and 103 provenances were included in the study. The provenances were divided into six provenance regions: Finland, northern Sweden, southern Sweden, the Baltic States, Belorussia and central Europe. After 12 years growth assessments were made of height and occurrence of lammas shoots, damaged leaders and spike knots. The Belorussian and the central European provenances had the highest mean height in the early assessments, up to age five. At 12 years of age, the southern Swedish and Baltic provenances showed the highest mean height. The most promising provenances were found in the eastern parts of Latvia and Lithuania. The difference in height at 12 years of age between south Swedish, Baltic and Belorussian provenances was not significant. The central European provenances had the lowest mean height at 12 years. The frequency of trees with lammas shoots was high both at four and 12 years of age. Both frequency of lammas shoots and height growth showed  More>>

The frequency of trees with lammas shoots was high both at four and 12 years of age. Both frequency of lammas shoots and height growth showed a clinal variation in the Swedish and Finnish regions. Regression analysis indicated that a transfer of two latitude degrees to the north gave an increased height growth of 6% compared to the local provenance. The correlation between growth rhythm, frost damage and growth are discussed. The influence of free growth on the ranking in height growth between provenances is also discussed. 27 refs, 9 figs, 5 tabs}
