Abstract [en]

Propagation and cultivation of masur figure birch. Figure wood has fascinated foresters and craftsmen for centuries. The curly birch, Betula pendula var. carelica, is the most common curly-grained wood, displaying a characteristic pattern of curly fibers. Three different types of curly birch, one with protuberances, one with neck masur and one slow-growing clone, were selected and micropropagated 1985 and planted at Pustnäs at Fyrisån, Uppsala, 1987. Micropropagated individuals of the same clone are very similar in tree morphology, growth and masur characteristics.

Furthermore a birch from Valls Hage, featuring extreme tumours were micropropageted and plants were replanted in the arboretum.
