Biological Harvesting Rotation (BHR) of Juglans neotropica Diels (Juglandaceae) from the analysis of growth rings in Central Rainforest of Perú

Content

In the central rainforest of Peru, the tree rings have not been used to obtain data from tree growth, although their application may be useful for forest management. The objective of this study was to determine the Biological Harvesting Rotation of Juglans neotropica from the analysis of tree-rings growth. For this purpose samples were collected from 64 trees from the forests of the Native Community "Tres Unidos de Matereni" Satipo Province. These samples were processed and measured according to standard techniques in dendrochronology. The current annual increment in diameter is 0.22cm/year and mean annual increment in diameter is 0.31cm/year. The projection of the curve of current annual increment in basal area is intercepted by the curve of mean annual increment in basal area indicating the biological harvesting rotation at about 128 years. These results indicate the applicability of dendrochronology for species in forests of the Central Rainforest of Peru.
