Wednesday Webinar: Cream of the Coppice – Hybrid Poplar Yields During the Establishment and Coppice Cycles

Advanced Hardwood Biofuels Northwest is developing a system to grow short-rotation poplars for bioenergy. The poplar varieties AHB is working with can be managed using a coppice system, which means the trees will re-grow from the cut stalks left in the field after harvesting, ensuring that the poplar farms will only need to be replanted every 18-20 years.
In this webinar, Jesus Espinoza and Brian Stanton from GreenWood Resources, will present data on the first-coppice growth and yield from the AHB demonstration sites. Learn all about the differences GreenWood Resources has seen in the poplar varieties, the demonstration sites, and the establishment and re-growth periods since the first harvest!
Who Should Attend?
Researchers, wood industry representatives, biofuel producers, environmental professionals, Extension personnel, community organizers, students, and bioenergy industry representatives.
Presenters: Jesus Espinoza and Brian Stanton from GreenWood Resources
Sponsored by: Washington State University Extension with funding from Agriculture and Food Research Initiative (AFRI) Competitive Grant no. 2011-68005-30407 from the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA).
