Coppice willows for biomass in the UK



Coppice willows for biomass in the UK



Energy from biomass 1st EC conference: 198-209



Results are given of trials at Long Ashton and in N. Ireland of fast-growing varieties with potential for pulpwood production on poorer soil types. Salix X 'Aquatica Gigantea' established at 1-4 setts/m2 and maintained weed-free on a 3-yr rotation gave the best results in Ireland: av. annual DM yields of 15.8 t/ha were obtained on the poor surface-water gley soils of Fermanagh. S. X dasyclados and S. viminalis are also promising.
