Willow (Salix sp.) grown for bioenergy on a coppice plantation. Here, the wood is periodically harvested by cutting the trees to near ground level, which stimulates the regrowth of numerous woody stems. The harvested stems are chipped and burnt in special furnaces at Cotham power station, seen here to the right of the plantation. This releases energy in the form of heat. Photographed in Nottinghamshire, UK.
