Wednesday Webinar: The Final Step: Harvesting Hybrid Poplar for Renewable Bioenergy Feedstock

GreenWood Resources recently harvested two, large- scale AHB hybrid poplar bioenergy demonstration farms that were planted in 2012 in Jefferson, Oregon and Hayden, Idaho. This was the second time that the farms were cut. The first cutting was in 2013 at the conclusion of the two-year, establishment cycle. Following that harvest, the stands were regenerated by coppice (i.e. re-sprouting from the stools), and grown for a second cycle of three years, before the trees were cut again in early 2017. The harvest operation utilized a New Holland FR 9080 forage harvester was fitted with a 130 FB coppice header, and was carried out in collaboration with The State University of New York, College of Environmental Science and Forestry with support from the U. S. Department of Energy. This webinar will present the 1st and 2nd cycle harvests including results of time-and-motion studies, operating parameters of the New Holland 9080, details on field loading of the biomass, challenges encountered and opportunities for improving operating efficiencies, and harvesting costs
Presenters: Rich Shuren, Brian Stanton, Rick Stonex, and Jesus Espioniza from GreenWood Resources and Tim Volk from The State University of New York, College of Environmental Science and Forestry
