In trees and bushes, shoots that sprout again from the stump or stump (which is then called a "stick") after the loss of the primary stem axis are referred to as stick rash. Most shrubs, but also some deciduous tree species (e.g. alder , willow , poplar , robinia , hornbeam , oak , linden , olive , occasionally with beech ) and a few conifer species (e.g. yew , coastal redwood ) are capable of this regeneration , rarely with fir trees ).
Occasionally, the rooting of wood cuttings during the propagation of trees or biogenic fascines in hydraulic engineering or the continued growth of felled trunk residues (trunk cuttings ) is referred to as stick rash.
The shoots of the stick rash are formed from so-called sleeping eyes of the remaining trunk. This phenomenon occurs especially after winter felling. Since trees from stick rash usually only have inferior trunk quality, the stick rash is only used in short rotation plantations and in low and medium-sized forest management forms that are no longer up-to-date .
"Put on the stick"
Hedges in the field, which were created to protect against the wind or to demarcate property ( wall hedge or kink) as well as to accompany the water, are from time to time "put on the stick", i.e. cut back to the stick and forced to swing the stick to keep the hedge tight . Above all, the wind protection function depends on the hedges not becoming bald in the lower area.
Such tightly clipped hedges are the small game conducive.
