Poplar and Willow Mixed Plantations for Sustainable Biomass Production

J. Weger, J. Bubeník & Havlíč
The purpose of the work is to evaluate the possibility of using poplar and willow in mixed short rota­tion coppice plantations (SRC) for sustainable biomass production. Two experimental mixed SRC plantations of pop­lar and willow clones were established. Selected poplar and willow clones were alternated in two double-rows in plantation Dalovice and in one double-row in plantation Michovka. Following biometric parameters were measured (height, number of stems and stem diameter at 1.0 m). Biomass yields...
