Paulownia

Paulownia tomentosa oder P. elongata (neuer Klon Shang Tong), zu Deutsch Blauglockenbaum oder Kiri, ist keine Extensive Energiepflanze im eigentlichen Sinne. Man kann diesen Baum natürlich auch energetisch verwerten, sprich verheizen, weil er enorme Zuwächse verspricht, doch gibt es für Paulownia weitaus lukrativere Möglichkeiten der Verwertung, nämlich die Nutzung als Wertholz. Die hohe Formstabilität bei geringem Gewichtt machen Paulownia-Holz zu […]

Poplar

Poplar (botanically: Populus) belongs to the willow family and, if uncultivated, grows mainly tree-shapedin fresh and well-irrigated soils. The deciduous leaves are shaped very differently, depending on the varieties, such as balsam poplar, black poplar, or trembling poplar / aspen, and their varieties, such as Max 4, may sometimes have a height of a child. In energy forests, mostly the breeds […]

Renewable energy

“Renewable energy” is a term that is used, not to say overused, today. The whole world is talking about the conversion of exhausting fossil fuels into renewable energy. It is clear to the most of people that this does not work overnight and that the capacities to be developed for this purpose are incredibly large. However, it is understood rather […]

Renewable Resources

(See also Nawaros – the German abbreviation for renewable resources) Renewable resources have already been used in multiple ways today. First and foremost, they are used for heat generation, and, thus, reduce to some extent our dependence on international fossil fuels. Furthermore, these renewable raw materials are also used to generate electricity, as an industrial raw material, in construction, and also in agriculture. In the […]

Rhizomes

(See also Miscanthus rhizomes, rhizomes) This a bit cumbersome term of “rhizome” can also be translated as “a piece of root”, “undercuts”, or “root cuttings”. It involves thickened roots of perennial grasses, such as elephant grass, which can be used for the propagation of this plant. Simply, such a propagation via rhizomes can be described as follows: Excavating a 2-4-year-old elephant grass-stick Such a […]

Shipping the plants

We are often asked if we could also offer the shipping of our plants. Our answer is as follows: About 90% of our energy crops come to our customers viaprofessional plant shipments. The ideal sequence is as follows: You order the plants in winter, no later than in March We confirm the order You pay […]

Short rotation forestry

Short rotation means energy forests that are harvested every few years and have a useful life of only 15 years (12 years in Italy). We describe 2-4 years as short rotation, 4-7 years as medium rotation, and 6-10 (12) years as long rotation. In short rotation foresting, we recommend to plant poplars as 6,500 to 10,000 pcs per hectare and willows or […]

Sida

(See also Sida, Sida east, Sida hermaphrodita) The Sida plant (= Sida hermaphrodita l. rusby) is one of the newer extensive energy plants. According to our knowledge, only in Poland, there is some decades-long experience with Sida. Botanically, it is a perennial, i.e. a long-lasting, herbaceous, deciduous plant. In late autumn, it accumulates nutrients in its roots […]
