DescriptionGrowth and survival data on the first three years of development of coppiced stands representing seven clones are described. The data were collected from small multispaced plots at the Rhinelander, Wisconsin, nursery. Sprout growth and mortality equations developed from this data were then integrated with growth and mortality equations developed for older trees of cutting origin to form a simulation model of coppice stand development. Model output suggests potential yields of 5-15 metric tons per hectare per year can be achieved at ages 5-15 years from a variety of spacing and clone combinations under intensive culture. However, there was evidence of considerable variability in results within clones.
