DescriptionThe production of alternative fuels as a source of energy is a focus of concern in the United States. Intensively cultured hybrid poplar plantations have been used to supplement industrial fiber supplies in several areas of the United States, and have therefore gained attention in the North Central region. Attention is focused on poplars because they are fast growing in this region. In addition, an increase in Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) lands enhances the opportunity for Tree Farmers to convert fallow marginal land into fiber-rich tree plantations in short time.
