Zambian charcoal production: miombo woodland recovery

, : Zambian charcoal production: miombo woodland recovery. Energy Policy 21(5): 586-597

The recovery of miombo woodlands following clearance for woodfuel is being monitored at four sites in central Zambia. This paper reports data collected in 1990-92. Charcoal production removes 50% of the total woody biomass and the woodland regenerates from a pool of stunted old seedlings and stumps of cut trees. Productivity is correlated with tree density before felling. Clearing of successive regrowth miombo does not appear to affect productivity.
