Editor’s Notes

Spring has been busy with production of three new AHB videos and three more Hardwood Biofuels Webinars on endophytes in poplars, modeling poplar growth, and creating a bioenergy curriculum. A new article on using poplar for bioenergy is now available through eXtension. This issue of the AHB E-Newsletter focuses on using poplars for bio-based products, breeding poplars for bioenergy, exploring the best sites for biorefineries in the Pacific Northwest, and short descriptions of the new AHB videos. The AHB Extension Team is busy planning summer field tours at each of the AHB demonstration sites and the Short Rotation Woody Crops Operations Working Group Conference in Seattle in July. Poster abstracts for the conference are still being accepted. To be more involved with the AHB project please complete our on-line stakeholder survey. We are looking forward to seeing you at the AHB field tours this summer.
