Pseudolarix (scientific name: Pseudolarix amabilis (Nelson) Rehd. For Pinaceae) Pseudolarix A kind of. Nickname Kanamatsu (Hangzhou), water (Zhejiang Huzhou). The blade bar, flat soft, spirally scattered on long branches, on short branches from 15 to 30 gold clusters, spreading to the surrounding radiation, then turn golden, round as coins, hence the name.
As a famous ancient relic species such as plants, the earliest fossils found in Siberia The late Cretaceous strata of the East and the West in ancient Miocene in the islands of Spitsbergen, Europe, Central Asia, the western United States, northeast China and Japan have also been found. Due to climate change, especially in the Pleistocene The great ice age The advent of the local extinction of larch. Only in the Yangtze River downstream Chinese in a few areas to survive. Because of the sporadic distribution of individual, rare, strong intermittence, and urgent protection.
Wood texture straight, moderate hardness, material is slightly rough, brittle. Can be used for building, plate, furniture, appliances and industrial raw materials such as wood fiber; bark extract tannin extract, medicine (commonly known as Pseudolaricis) helps to treat intractable tinea and dyspepsia symptoms; root bark can be medicinal, also can be used for paper sizing; seeds oil extraction.

Speciesis Growth habit

At an altitude of 100 meters to 1500 areas scattered in conifer and broadleaf trees. Its fast growth, acidic soil mountain area in warm, wet, like soil deep, fertile, well drained.
From early hi light, slightly resistant to light shade, after enhancement. In the annual temperature 15 to 18 degrees Celsius, the absolute minimum temperature of minus 10 degrees celsius. The strong performance of anti fire speciesis.

Speciesis geographical distribution

Southern Jiangsu (Yixing), Zhejiang, southern Anhui, northern Fujian, Jiangxi, Hunan, Hubei, Lichuan and Sichuan Wanxian Border area.

Speciesis Breeding method

Cuttings or seed propagation. Seed should be more than 20 years old growth trees. The cones are not fully ripe to early harvest, if the harvest late seed scales fall together with half. The nursery should be inoculated with mycorrhizal soil. Transplantation should be carried out in the bud before, should pay attention to the protection and with mycorrhiza. As mycorrhizal species Pseudolarix, suitable sowing and seedling in the forest. Or with mycorrhizal soil covering seedbed, suitable for nursery continuous cropping. The seedlings 15-20 cm tall, usually stay in bed for two years with three years of cultivation, planting seedlings. The seed harvest year, the implementation of direct seeding afforestation or artificial natural regeneration, also easy to succeed. The use of less than 10 years old young cuttings, the survival rate could reach 70%.
Larch is a deciduous arbor, its propagation by cutting the main, also can sow. Cutting in spring or autumn, especially in early spring cuttage survival rate is high, generally above 85%. In the spring before germination, combined with pruning, their branches 10 to 12 centimeters, the top 3 to 5 full bud as well. The cuttings directly hit the bed, buried at a depth of 6 to 8 cm, the spacing is 5 x 10 cm, pay attention to prevent shading, the soil is too wet. insert After pouring enough water, with 50 cm high plastic film Gongpeng cover on farmland, keep seedbed moist, Gongpeng above the erection of 1.8 meters high shade, double zheyangwang materials, so that the air circulation, reduce the occurrence of pests and diseases. After rooting, peel off layer shade net, gradually increase the seedbed of light, the last remaining small Gongpeng film in cold winter. The following spring transplanting should bring up the old territory, with the starting with planting, easy survival. Planting season should be in the winter leaves to the next spring before germination. Such light should be sparse planting. 2 ~ 3 year after planting pine root soil, tending not pruning.
The size of Pseudolarix significantly, generally every 3 to 5 years, or even 7 years to yield I. Young cones mostly empty seed grain, seed selection should be more than twenty years old growth trees. From 10 to November were put in ripening, indoor stalls, every 100 kilograms of cones can be 8 ~ 12 kg net. The seed germination rate of more than 60% in general. Seedling should first mixed forest soil money, so that people with mycorrhiza. Sowing in early February to early March, before sowing the seeds placed in 40CC water (cooling) by day and night, drill or broadcast sowing amount of 12 kg per mu. After sowing with mycorrhizal soil cover, the seed for the degree, cover straw or other covering, usually 20 days after germination and emergence, should promptly uncover. At the seedling stage half shade environment, can be sprayed Bordeaux disease on a sunny day. For dry early seedling stage, water and fertilizer management should be good. After September, in the vigorous growth stage, to strengthen management, to promote the rapid growth. In the normal management, the seedling height can reach 10 to 15 cm, can stay in bed for a year, the urban greening shall be transplanted big culture. Because there is a symbiotic relationship with Larch mycorrhiza, the propagation and cultivation must mix with mycorrhizal soil in the new area.
Spring planting in Larch buds before germinating, autumn and winter in the leaves. Many small seedling transplanting seedlings with soil, must dig up mud ball.

Speciesis cultivation techniques

Speciesis Seed

From strong interval is longer, usually 3-5 years solid one time, 10 months late. When mature, scales to yellow can be harvested. 20-30 should be born without seed when seed pests strong. The interior is collected after stacking cones, the scales, cracking, threshing, screening available, and then piled up at a dry storage (seed rate 12-15%). The seed weight 20-24 grams per kilogram of pure 2000024000 grain seeds. The germination rate of more than 80%.

Speciesis Grow seedlings

As mycorrhizal species Pseudolarix, should set up a permanent breeding base at an altitude of 400-500 meters mountain, or mycelium forest seedling in soil. The plain and hilly areas can choose more shade the fertile soil, moist and loose as a local nursery. Shizujifei after bed preparation, to break the clods, intensive and meticulous farming flat bed. The planting season in early to mid March, before sowing seeds in 40 degrees warm water soaking and pregermination 18-24 hours, and then 0.5% formalin disinfection. A distance of 20 cm, seedling, sowing trench to spread a layer of fine soil. With the seeds of 15 kg per mu. After sowing to thin soil cover, available to cover a coke Nihui, still can see part of the seed is appropriate, then cover the grass.
After sowing 2 weeks after seedling emergence, 20 days out of qi. For most seedlings unearthed after the removal of grass cover. 5 July 1 - month fertilizer 2 times, each unit applying ammonium sulfate 2 - 5 kg. The seedling height of 10 cm, must stay in bed for a year, second year spring before germination, application of thin human excrement or application of ammonium sulfate (2 - 3 kg / mu), the remaining 6-8 million trees after thinning, 2 year old seedling height of 30 cm above.

Speciesis Afforestation technology

In the winter after the leaves to second years before germination of afforestation. The commonly used 2-3 annual seedlings afforestation.
Planting density: 200-240 plants / mu. The spacing of 1.7 * 1.7 ~ 1.5 * 2m. 2 years above the level of seedling height 35cm, diameter of more than 0.5cm. 3 years above the level of seedling height 50cm, diameter of more than 0.8cm.
Preparation method: bulk preparation of not less than 50 * 1250px, depth of not less than 500px. The planting hole bottom diameter not less than 750px, depth of not less than 750px.

Speciesis Tending

Annual management: Pseudolarix initial growth is relatively slow, can be combined with intercropping, annual herb chopping soil raised 2 - 3 times, tending, not pruning, generally 5 to 6 years can be closed. After closing, every 3, 4 years, in addition to the 1 vine cut miscellaneous.
Thinning period: 12 - 15 years later when the canopy density was more than 0.9, pressed wood accounted for 20 of total plants - 30%, can carry out appropriate thinning. The lower layer thinning, the first thinning intensity of 25 - 35% of the total number of individuals per mu forest, retained 120 160 lines, 20 after 30%, after thinning density not less than 0.7, thinning interval for 10 years. Cultivate large diameter timber in 20 - 25 years before thinning 1 times, the remaining 60 - 80 strains.
The felling period: Plantation for 30 years, the general forest 30 - 50 years.

Speciesis Pest control

A large moth. The timely removal of bags, concentrated burned; on young larvae, with 800 to 90% trichlorfon 1000 times spray; in the mountain area from mulberry distant, sprayed budworm bacteria, Bacillus thuringiensis, Beauveria bassiana also has good effect.

Speciesis Bonsai

Optional coarse and fine, high, low, the growth of healthy plants and planted in a pot made of jungle bonsai, should pay attention to the organic collocation clearly, low density, and with stone figures, can fully reflect the nature of forest landscape fresh. It can also be made into a straight shape, dry, dry, dry, double needle curved stem type bonsai can.
The maintenance points are as follows:
The 1 is too arid, barren or saline alkaline soil, will be completed, deciduous phenomenon; in acidic or neutral soil deep, fertile, well drained.
2 have not heat tolerant characteristics, optimum growth temperature is 15 to 25 DEG C, in the summer temperature of 32 degrees Celsius above that should be moved to the shade, not less than 0 degrees during the winter.
3 hi light, in addition to 50 to 70% should pay attention to the summer shade, the other seasons can be cultivated in the sun.
4 must pay attention to water control, make Pentu dry, to prevent rot, the general should be dry and wet, and often to the foliage and stems more water, to keep the soil and air humidity, to prevent dry leaf tip blight.
The 5 month growth period of application of thin liquid fertilizer 1 times, with the decomposition of organic fertilizer such as bean dregs diluted in water use, every rainy season, the hot season or Liqiu after stopping application.
6 pruning should be combined with the design, its growth, focus on growth speed on the growth period of slower growth of branches truncated, weak branches to temporarily retain, to grow strong after processing.
