Abstract

India covers 147.75 mha degraded area, whereas 6.41 mha area confined to waterlogging problem in Bihar, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh, Orissa, West Bengal, Punjab, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Haryana, Kerala, Rajasthan and few other states. The transpiration principle of plants is used in...

Abstract

The study is the outcome of current status and economic evaluation of Poplar based agroforestry practices followed by farmers in Haridwar and Yamunanagar. Tree species like Populus deltoides, Eucalyptus spp., Mangifera indica and Dalbergia sissoo, were dominant species of commercial agroforestry....

Abstract

Tree farming has developed rapidly since the early 1990s. Today, tree plantations play an important role in wood supply (including quality wood) and they can partly bridge the gap between national demand and supply which currently leads to substantial wood imports. The opportunity to start new...

Abstract

Short rotation woody crops (SRWCs) are ideal for woody biomass production and management systems because they are renewable energy feedstocks for biofuels, bioenergy, and bioproducts that can be strategically placed in the landscape to conserve soil and water, recycle nutrients, and sequester...

Abstract

In 2004 there was a serious energy crisis in Chile as a result of Argentina severely cutting its supply of gas to Chile. As a result of this, a wood energy programme was put in place in 2007 which aimed to raise forest energy plantations that would become the primary source of Chile's energy....

Abstract

Forest industry experts were consulted on the potential for hardwood tree species to serve as feedstock for bioenergy in the southeastern United States. Hardwoods are of interest for bioenergy because of desirable physical qualities, genetic research advances, and growth potential. Yet little data...

Abstract

Biomass enjoys special status amongst the sources of renewable energy because it is a source both of energy vectors and of carbonaceous molecules. According to European directives, the contribution of the biomass to the production of energy will triple in the next ten years. Faced with this...

Abstract

This paper highlights various factors which determine the productivity of plantations, and reviews published literature covering productivity and timber yields of plantations based on genetically improved clones. Well managed clonal Eucalyptus and poplar (Populus) plantations on good sites can...

Abstract

A simple model is used to estimate the potential costs of production of four cultivation regimes that can be used to produce biomass for energy in central Chile. The selected cultivation regimes represent different silvicultural intensities and use Populus, Salix, Pinus and Eucalyptus genders. The...

Abstract

Purpose-grown trees will be part of the bioenergy solution in the United States, especially in the Southeast where plantation forestry is prevalent and economically important. Trees provide a "living biomass inventory" with existing end-use markets and associated infrastructure, unlike other...
