About this book

Language: Dutch

Prunus serotina, commonly called the black cherry, is the scourge of foresters and naturalists. This exotic tree species is being actively fought in the Netherlands and Belgium. But the story behind this tree is surprising, as it has many positive traits that may well outweigh the negative ones. The authors re-evaluate this species and propose a new way of managing it. As such, this book looks at all sides of the issue, the history and future of the black cherry, and offers guidelines for differentiated management. Amerikaanse Vogelkers shows how we can give this exotic species a place in the European forest ecosystem, while at the same time reducing the costs involved in combating it. Current knowledge has been carefully selected for specialists in silviculture, forestry, policy makers, and ecologists.

Summary in Dutch:
Hij is de schrik van veel bosbeheerders en natuurliefhebbers: de Amerikaanse vogelkers. Deze exotische boomsoort wordt in Nederland en België actief bestreden. Maar het verhaal achter de boom is verrassend, want haar positieve eigenschappen wegen wellicht op tegen de nadelen. De auteurs vinden daarom dat het tijd is voor een herwaardering en een nieuwe aanpak. Dit boek belicht dan ook alle kanten: geschiedenis én toekomst van de vogelkers, en het biedt nieuwe handvatten voor gedifferentieerd beheer. Amerikaanse Vogelkers laat zien hoe we deze exoot een plek kunnen geven in het Europese bosecosysteem, en tegelijk de bestrijdingskosten kunnen verminderen. Actuele kennis zorgvuldig bijeengebracht voor specialisten in boomteelt, bosbeheerders, beleidsmakers en ecologen.
