Editor’s Notes

The Hardwood Biofuels Wednesday Webinar series started the year with a webinar on soil quality in January followed with a February webinar covering the best locations for growing poplar in the Pacific Northwest. The webinar series will finish off this spring with webinars on endophytes in poplars, modeling poplar growth, and creating a bioenergy curriculum. This issue of the AHB E-Newsletter focuses on finding ways to limit herbivory in poplars, measuring greenhouse gas emissions in poplar demonstration sites, and exploring the diversity of students in the Bioenergy Minor at Oregon State University. The AHB Extension Team is busy planning two conferences in Seattle: the Northwest Wood-based Biofuels and Co-products Conference and the Short Rotation Woody Crops Working Group Conference. The abstract submission deadlines for both conferences are at the beginning of April. We have also set the dates for the summer field tours at the AHB demonstration sites. More details coming soon!
