IMPROVEMENT OF FOREST TREES FOR SHORT-TERM BIOMASS PRODUCTION
This programme aims at selecting and improving highly productive forest tree species for short term biomass production. Sites where this forest biomass production could be established appear marginal for high quality forest production. The programme has to be developed in the following directions: increasing the number of genera to be tested, wider sampling of the potential biomass production areas in France on which to establish trials, more accurate study of the Alder-Frankia symbiosis to produce a fast adaptation and quick early growth of seedlings. Research should also be initiated or developed in the following fields: short rotation forestry, pathological aspects of densely planted and coppiced stands, action of intensive production on the environment, harvesting techniques adapted to small plots, sociological and economic integration of this production in existing farmed and forested areas.
