Trials of single stem energy plantation

Technical Report:

Abstract

Eleven trials of single stem energy plantations were established in 1981-83 using ten different tree species. Phase I of the study (1980 -1989) covered the establishment of the crop, collection of data on costs and logistics of establishment, and measurements of tree growth. Phase II (1989 - 1992), reported here, was concerned with the monitoring of growth, determination of biomass production on eight sites and an assessment of the economic viability of such plantations on farms. Height growth varied across sites and species with the best performance being recorded for alder which achieved 7.8 m after 9 years. Most species attained average heights in excess of 3 metres.
