Caption: Fuelwood plantation. A farmer surveys his crop of 8-year-old willow (Salix sp.) trees being grown for fuelwood. This is a coppice plantation: the trees are periodically cut to near ground level, which encourages the proliferation of numerous woody stems. The trees on the left show two years' growth since last cutting. Those on the right were cut one year ago. Fuelwood is a form of renewable energy. After harvesting, the coppiced stems are chipped and burnt in special furnaces to release energy. Unlike fossil fuels, fuelwood does not contribute to global warming. This plantation is part of a government-sponsored trial taking place Clanfield, Oxfordshire, UK.
