Growing willow and poplars for fuel is an increasingly popular way of utilising set-aside land, particularly as coppicing in Britain can be carried out without forfeiting set-aside subsidies. The wood can be sold directly for fuel, or converted to electricity and sold to power companies. This book covers the basic techniques of short-rotation coppicing including crop establishment, protection and harvesting. Marketing and grants are also discussed. George Macpherson is currently actively involved in the production of biomass.
