Short rotation coppice

The land areas used for cultivating the coppice crops intended for energy generation have grown considerably in recent years, despite the fact that the areas actually put into production have fallen significantly short of expectations. Of late, the market for energy wood has seen a significant increase in demand. In order to meet future goals for the increase of short rotation croplands, however, more information regarding energy wood cultivation is needed.

Some useful and more technical information about harvesting and logistics concepts of short rotation forestry are available in following booklets prepared by project consortium or prepared during the BiomassTradeCentres project.
