Mark record


Establishing a plantation with rapid-growth species for bioenergy purposes, such as hybrid poplars or willows, is one thing. But estimating the quantity of biomass that it contains is quite another thing. To meet this requirement, a Canadian Forest Service team developed the ENBIOCAL (ENergy BIOmass CALculation) tool.

Plain Language Summary

This fact sheet presents ENBIOCAL, a tool designed to estimate the quantity of biomass contained in willow and hybrid poplar plantations for bioenergy production purposes.

Branching Out is a series of plain language fact sheets describing Laurentian Forestry Centre research projects.
