CONTRIBUTION TO THE SILVICULTURAL STUDY OF CUPRESSUS SEMPERVIRENS
Dr. Yahi Djamel, Prof. Rached-Kanouni Malika
In order to promote the timber industry of Cupressus sempervirens in Algeria and to be able to give a proposal of silvicultural conduct, we undertook research on the species and a silvicultural analysis of some stands of the forest of El Hamimet (East Algeria). The results of the bibliographic research reveal that the wood of Cupressus sempervirens is of superior quality, having all the criteria such as aesthetic aspect, hardness, structural stability and durability that a multitude of uses requires. The results of the silvicultural analysis of the studied stands show that the forest of El Hamimet is a very favourable station for Cupressus sempervirens.
