Cutting the super willows

Yesterday we harvested the superwillows planted three years ago.  They would have shaded out the solar PV we are putting on the roof of the workshop and it was time to harvest anyway.  We cut a good load of wood for burning, some cuttings for planting and the rest was chipped by our WWOOFer Ales and put round the raspberries as a mulch.


  1. Love the blog!

    What are superwillows?

    I planted a few OP-367 hybrid poplars for firewood a few years ago. They are growing about 2 meters taller and 3cm diameter every year.

  2. Thanks Eric, I wonder if poplars would grow as fast here in the UK?
