Willow Harvesting

Willow is a short rotation woody crop that rapidly produces large amount of biomass. The harvested willow biomass can be processed into renewable energy, heat, and other products such as livestock and poultry beddings, biochemicals, bioplastics and many more. Harvesting is the single largest cost component of willow production. As such, efforts should be aimed at reducing the harvest cost by having reliable high-performing harvest systems to improve the harvesting efficiency and increase the profitability of willow biomass production.
