Abstract

There has recently been much interest in short rotation forestry (SRF) and the possibility of high levels of yield from eucalypts and other species. This paper describes the results of a 1980 experiment at four sites that examined the productivity of a range of broadleaved species and compared the...

Abstract

Populus is a genus of extremely fast-growing trees originating in the northern hemisphere, with potential as a source of renewable, biomass energy. The aim of this work was to physiologically characterize genotypes of hybrid poplar, informing future selection, breeding and the development of...

Abstract

In trials conducted at Claverham, near Bristol, UK, it was found that the shoot weight of poplar [Populus] and willow [Salix] established in different levels of ground cover in 1993 was reduced by 60-90% by the end of the first year compared with weed-free plots, but survival was not affected....

Abstract

The yield from two polar clones (Populus interamericana 'Beaupré', P. trichocarpa 'Columbia River') and two willow clones (Salix 'Dasyclados' [S. dasyclados], S.viminalis 'Bowles hybrid') grown as short rotation (3 yr) energy coppice were examined at 6 spacings (0.8-1.5 m) at sites in north...

Abstract

A total of 51 ha of short rotation coppice was planted at 6 commercial farms ranging from arable farms in the east to grassland farms in the west of southern England between 1992 and 1994, in the DTI Farm Wood Fuel and Energy Project. This included 14 plantings of Populus trichocarpa × deltoides...

Abstract

This review examines the potential for producing biomass on restored landfills using willow (Salix spp.) and poplar (Populus spp.) species in short rotation energy forestry. In southern England, the potential production may be about 20 t/ha of dry stem wood annually. However, actual yields are...

Abstract

Game birds provide a considerable incentive to plant and manage new woodlands. The supplementary income thus generated can improve the overall value of the woodlands. Other studies suggest that short rotation coppice (SRC) crops may provide an attractive habitat for some game bird species and could ...

Abstract

Young poplar (Populus sp.) plantations, including some close-spaced single stem plantations and some short rotation coppice, have been seriously affected by leaf rust (Melampsora larici-populina) at some sites, mainly SW Britain, during 1996 and 1997. In the worst cases this has resulted in dieback ...

Abstract

Stand transpiration of short-rotation coppice (fuel plantations) of the poplar clones Populus 'Beaupré' (P. trichocarpa × P. deltoides [P. interamericana]) and P. 'Dorschkamp' (Populus deltoides × P. nigra [P. canadensis]) was estimated from rates of sap flow measured using the stem heat balance...
