Biomass Production of Native Willow Short Rotation Coppice in Four Three-Year Rotation Cycles

&
The article comprises the results of an evaluation of a 12-year experimental plantation with clones of native willows and their natural hybrids (Salix alba, Salix × rubens, Salix viminalis a Salix × smithiana), which were grown in 3-year rotation on a locality with suitable growing conditions. Biomass yield from four harvests along with tree height, number and diameter of stems and survival rate were measured. Yields were statistically evaluated and significant differences were found.
