    While international efforts in the development of short rotation woody crops (SRWCs) have historically focused on the production of biomass for bioenergy, biofuels, and bioproducts, research and deployment over the past decade has expanded to include broader objectives of achieving multiple ecosystem services. In particular, silvicultural prescriptions developed for SRWCs have been refined to include woody crop production systems for environmental benefits such as carbon sequestration, water quality and quantity, and soil health. In addition, current systems have been expanded beyond traditional fiber production to other environmental technologies that incorporate SRWCs as vital components for phytotechnologies, urban afforestation, ecological restoration, and mine reclamation. In this Forests Special Issue titled Short Rotation Woody Crop Production Systems for Ecosystem Services and Phytotechnologies we explore the broad range of international current research dedicated to our topic. The issue can be found online at issues/woody crop production. There are a total of 18 papers in this book, reprinted from the online Special Issue.
