The aim of this study is to evaluate both the ability for regrowth and the rate of growth during the first vegetative period after the cutting, in clonal poplar plantations established in different ecological conditions. The plantations were located in Madrid, León, Soria and Girona, the climatic and soil conditions differing from one location to another. At each site, the planting densities were in all cases 33.333 plants/ha and the clones included in the trials...
