Abstract
Effective forestry management requires the selection of appropriate tree species that are able to grow under a range of environmental conditions. Here, we aimed to determine how a single tree species grows under different biotic and abiotic environmental conditions. Specifically, we quantified the total biomass of the above- and below-ground parts of ten 18-year-old Manchurian firs (Abies holophylla Max.) located in one stand in Gyeongsan City and one stand in Gyeongju City, Gyeongbuk Province, Korea. The Gyeongsan stand exhibited more growth in diameter, volume, and total biomass. In addition, the roots of this stand grew farther from the stump compared to the Gyeongju stand, resulting in a difference in root growth between the two stands. The S/R rate of the trees was 3.49 and 2.99 in the Gyeongju and Gyeongsan stands, respectively. However the growth pattern of each tree part was similar in both stands. Hence, we demonstrate that planting A. holophylla under different biotic and abiotic conditions, such as soil composition, temperature, and humidity, potentially influences initial growth rates; thus, environmental conditions should be considered when deciding which species should be used for afforestation, and appropriate forestry practices should be regulated.
