Caption: Fuelwood plantation. A farmer examines his crop of 8-year-old willow (Salix sp.) trees being grown for fuelwood. This is a coppice plantation: the wood is periodically harvested by cutting the trees to near ground level, which stimulates the regrowth of numerous woody stems. These trees were last cut two years ago. Fuelwood is a renewable source of 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 because there is no net release of carbon dioxide. This government-sponsored trial planta- tion was photographed in Clanfield, UK.
