    Poplar varietes for short and long term rotation plantations

    Based on Lignovis own multi-year trials of more than 30 poplar clones, three variety groups proved to be particularly profitable and healthy. Max and Matrix varieties as well as Hybride 275 ensure the best efficiency in our experience. Hence, we highly recommend their utilisation in commercial short-rotation plantations in Germany and Central Europe.

    Willow varieties for short rotation plantations

    As a licensed reseller of Salixenergi Europe AB Lignovis offers high yielding willow varieties bred by Lanntmännen SW Seed. Based on our experiences of Lignovis own plantations, we recommend the varieties Tora, Tordis and Inger for short rotation plantations in Central Europe.

    The willow planting material is produced by Salix Energi Europe AB in Germany and will be stored chilled until delivery.

    Cuttings and rods in various dimensions

    Lignovis offers poplars and willows as unrooted rods and cuttings according to the customer’s requirements. This ranges from 20 cm long cuttings for cutting planting machines (e.g. Ferri Rotor Planter) to 230 cm long rods for rod planting machines (e.g. Step Planter or Egedal Energy Planter) or poplar rods with increased diameter for manual planting.
