Traditional Poplar Plantation


Traditional poplar plantations and their derived products:

Traditional poplar plantations are based on plantings with a density of 280-300 plants per hectare and 8/12-year cycles; they require relatively intensive, often agronomical cultivation technhiques (fertilizing, weeding, pruning, etc.) to facilitate the productive potential of the plants. The techniques used vary in quantity and quality according to the environmental features, the clones used and the sets to be obtained.

Research plays a key role in the continued selection of clones with high productivity, disease resistance, wood quality and adaptability to different environmental conditions. At the end of the productive cycle, the best trunks undergo stripping for plywood and packaging industries, and sawing for the production of laminboards, packaging, semi-finished products for furniture and fixtures; by-products (logs, treetops, branchwoods) are used for the production of particle and fibre boards, pulp, and biomass (woodchips).
