Tree species selection for an ecological landscape forest at Qingshan Lake,Zhejiang Province

    Corresponding author: WEI Xin-liang

Abstract: ree species selection is a key technical element in the construction of an ecological landscape forest. Designed to facilitate tourism development at Qingshan Lake National Forest Park in Zhejiang Province,this research considered the local environment and ecosystem to determine a set of standards for tree species selection and then determine the best trees to use. With the advice of specialists,standards consisting of biological characteristics,ornamental characteristics,and ecological functions were chosen. To this end,twelve evaluating indexes were used including morphological habit,rate of growth,adaptability to soil,and resistance to insect pests and diseases. With a five level rating system,a quantitative grade was determined for each index,and using a stratified analysis,weights were fixed for each index. Then,this comprehensive evaluating index system and quantitative model were applied to 41 tree species to determine tree species selection. Results showed that among the deciduous tree species,Albizzia julibrissin,Liquidambar formosana,Sapium sebiferum,Pistacia chinensis,Ailanthus altissima,and Ginkgo biloba were excellent choices,and that among evergreen tree species,Castanopsis sclerophylla,Cinnamomum camphora,Michelia maudiae,and Schima superba were excellent ones. However,Albizzia julibrissin with its low branching habit was not appropriate for large-scale planting. Therefore,the suggested primary tree species for Qingshan Lake National Forest Park were the following four species:Liquidambar formosana,Sapium sebiferum,Castanopsis sclerophylla,and Cinnamomum camphora.
