Willow coppice systems in short rotation forestry: effects of plant spacing rotation length and clonal composition on biomass production



Willow coppice systems in short rotation forestry: effects of plant spacing rotation length and clonal composition on biomass production



Biomass and Bioenergy 4(5): 323-331



Above ground biomass production was determined for ten Salix clones grown in pure and mixed stands in Sweden at a square spacing of 1 m and seven rotation periods (1 to 6 and 8 yr), and of one clone grown at four square spacings (0.5, 0.6, 0.7 and 1 m), with rotation cycles of 1-5 yr. Most clones reached a maximum mean annual increment (8 to 14 t/ha) under a rotation period of 4-5 yr.
