The fact that certain ecological factors fundamentally influencing tree growth have become unfavourable in Hungary in recent years, has led to the more extensive use of white poplar (and its hybrids) in afforestation and forest regeneration. An intensive integrated research and development work has been carried out on the growth of Leuce poplars on sandy soils, including primarily the white poplar (Populus alba) and its natural hybrid the grey poplar (Populus x canescens). The research revealed several factors influencing stand growth. The study presents a new, simplified tending operation model for Leuce poplar stands, as well as age, growing space and target diameter models suitable for qualitaty log production and for mass assortments. The simplicity of these practice-oriented models may foster the qualitative development of Leuce poplar management in Hungary.
