Title: Arboretum Kalmthout and it’s dendrological valuables

Author(s) of article (institution): dr. Valerija Baroniene (Dubrava experimental and training forest enterprise)

Reviewer (institution): doc. dr. Laimutis Januskevicius (Kaunas university of technology)

Abstract: Arboretum Kalmthout has an exclusive plant collection, known worldwide:12 hectares, more than 7000 rare trees and shrubs. The oldest trees of the Kalmthout Arboretum were planted by Charles Van Geert, more than a 150 years ago. His nursery developed into a major tree garden thanks to Van Geert’s successors: Antoine Kort and Robert and Jelena de Belder. At Arboretum Kalmthout you will find plants from all over the world. The plants are planted in natural units and combined to create aesthetic, natural–looking arrangements. Arboretum Kalmthout possesses one of the best and most varied plant collections of the European mainland. Conservation collections of plants are of highly important status and take priority over others. Specialisations: Hamamelis – witch hazel, Hardy Ghent – deciduous hardy azalea; Van Geert selections; de Belder selections and introductions. A reference collection of plants shows the diversity and possibilities within a certain family, genus or variety of plants. Specialisations in Kalmthout arboretum: Amelanchier  – serviceberry; Buddleja  – butterfly bush; Halesia  – snowdrop tree; Hamamelidaceae  – family of witch hazel; Hydrangea paniculata – paniculata hydrangeas; Liriodendron  – tulip tree. Arboretum Kalmthout is known over the whole world for its collection of witch hazels. It played an important role in the past in the selection of witch hazels. Many of the cultivated varieties worldwide were created in Kalmthout by Antoine Kort and the Belder family. The International Cultivar Registration Authority for the genus of Hamamelis is Arboretum Kalmthout. For some tens of years now the “Witch hazel festival“ has been organised here to celebrate the appearance of this winter bloomer.

Abstract: According the data of the research and monitoring alien woody plants compose about 85 % of assortment of trees and shrubs grown in our decorative greenery. They are usually from other geographical regions with a warmer climate. The main criterion ensuring longevity and aesthetic value of created greenery is resistance to winter of their woody plants. Plants only completely resistant to weather conditions should be grown in our greenery. Plants origin is very important as well. The priority should be given to planting stock growning arboretums of our country. Processing and maintenance of green areas should be guided by one basic principle – only healthy plants with good aesthetic appearance have to grow in decorative greenery. This is inevitable and essential condition for preservation of healthy and long–lived greenery for which there is no other alternative.

Title: Analysis of the extinction causes and protection methods of the plants included into Lithuanian Red list

Author(s) of article (institution): researcher, lecturer Jolanta Margeliene (Kauno kolegija/University of applied sciences)

Reviewer (institution): researcher, lecturer Jonas Vaidelys (Kauno kolegija/University of applied sciences)

Abstract: In order to preserve rare plants it is necessary to know the reasons for their extinction and to adapt certain protection measures. For that reason 55 decorative plants included into Lithuanian red list were analyzed. The results identify the reasons for their extinction; usually they become extinct because of the habitat overgrowth with trees and bushes (58,18 %), drainage and irrigation (36,36 %) as well as intensive farming (29,09 %). They are less endangered by grazing (21,82 %), plant picking for medical uses and cutting (20 %) as well as grass closure (16,36 proc%).  It was identified that the main protective measures for the outdoor decorative plants are the support of traditional farming, limitations of grazing and hey harvesting, the maintenance of water hydro chemical, hydrological and hydrographic regime, the maintenance of the open areas and their protection from the overgrowing with trees or bushes, etc.

Reviewer (institution): dr. Antanina Stankeviciene (Kaunas Botanical Garden of Vytautas Magnus university)

Abstract: The state of woody plants after the winters of 2009–2010 and 2010–2011 was different. The injuries to conifers after the both winters were very comparable. The number of injured ever–green and summer–green leaved plants was bigger in comparison to healthy individuals after the winter of 2010–2011. The bigger injuries were caused by: 1) longer–lasting negative temperature in winter of 2010–2011, 2) leaved plants were damaged by strong frost at the end of winter (from mid to end of February), 3) conifers were nipped off and were burned by sun because the end of winter was cold and sunny. The frost injuries of conifers in winter of 2009–2010 were determined by the sudden shift in air temperature to positive in the early spring – above–ground part of plants started the vegetation, while the roots remained frozen.
