This information report examines the policies, laws, regulations and programs that could influence the implementation on privately owned land in Quebec of four short-rotation afforestation and agroforestry systems. The systems are: 1) short-rotation intensive culture (3-4-year cycles) of willow; 2) block plantation of hybrid poplar (15-20-year rotations); 3) alley cropping using willow and hybrid poplar; and 4) willow-based riparian buffer systems. This inventory of the regulatory framework and incentive programs allows us to identify several application issues for the systems. These issues will be studied in greater detail during a later phase of the project within which this study was conducted.
