Short rotation high density plantations were established in the provinces of Soria and Madrid in 2009. Three poplar clones (I-214 and two improved new clones Oudenberg and Baldo) together with willow, black locust and sycamore species were included in the study. Representative samples were collected after a three year cycle. Species harvested in Madrid lead to a higher yield (10.9 odt/ha year as average of all species and/or clones) than species harvested in Soria (9.3...
