Title: New Applicator for the Wood Destroying Fungi Inoculation
Author: Martin Pavlík, Martin Pavlík jr.
Actual research is aimed on utilization of the waste dendromass of the broadleaved trees in various dimensions according to their presence in forestry practice. Wood material with diameter over 7 cm – so called “thick wood” – is the greatest source of the deadwood at the forest stand. It consists mainly of short and long fragments of branches, whole trunks laying and decomposing on the ground, and stumps remaining on the forest stand after tree cutting. Naturally, this dendromass provides the nutrients for the living trees of the forest stands. Its decomposition can be sped up with the assistance of wood decaying fungi, providing fruiting bodies of interest while leaving the nutrients to absorb into the soil.
