DescriptionDevelopment and management of plantations to support wood-energy programs have been aggressively promoted in the Philippines since 1979. Over 60,000 hectarees of energy plantations have been platned under government-supported programs. This paper documents the problems and accomplishments of these programs and describes plantation establishment, maintenance, protection, growth and yield, harvesting, and wood transport. Research priorities for improving energy farm operations are also suggested.
