Short rotation forestry (SRF) consists of planting a site and then felling the trees when they have reached a size of typically cm diameter at breast height. Depending on tree species this usually takes between 8 and 20 years, and is therefore intermediate in.

Citation: McKay, H. (ed.) () Short Rotation Forestry: review of growth and environmental impacts. Forest Research Monograph, 2, Forest Research, Surrey, pp. Forest Research is an Agency of the Forestry Commission and is the leading UK organisation engaged in forestry and tree related research.

The Agency aims to support and enhance. Species used. SRF is the practice of cultivating fast-growing trees that reach their economically optimum size between eight and 20 years old.

Species used are selected on this basis and include Alder, Ash, Southern Beech, Birch, Eucalyptus, Poplar, Willow, new varieties of paulownia elongata, Paper mulberry, Australian Blackwood and Sycamore.

Planting and harvesting. A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Short rotation forestry As a rotation crop, SRC is harvested at specific intervals, to provide a regular and constantly renewable supply of fuel.

The development of SRC for renewable energy production is a new sector with potential for considerable expansion, offering benefits for growers, developers, consumers, local communities and the.

This paper presents an economic model of short-rotation forestry and shows that Lemke's linear complementarity algorithm can be used to compute optimal sustainable harvesting strategies.

As an example, we apply our method, using existing data, to calculate optimal harvesting strategies for a plantation consisting of two interdependent species of by: 4.

The economic competitiveness of short-rotation woody crop (SRWC) systems in the United States varies widely depending on a large number of factors such as end-product use, product price, conversion technology, yields, and land costs.
