National Network of Short Rotation Woody Crop Research, Development and Demonstration Sites This data depicts the locations of Short Rotation Woody Crop (SRWC) research, development and demonstration sites established across Canada by the Canadian Wood Fibre Centre, its partners and/or private land owners. Short Rotation Woody Crops represent enormous potential with respect to future sources of bioenergy and/or sinks for carbon. Since 2002, the Silviculture Innovation Group of the Canadian Wood Fibre Centre has established over 1 000 hectares of "high yield afforestation", “mixedwood afforestation” and "concentrated woody biomass" SRWC systems across Canada. The refinement of the biological and operational components of these systems is ongoing to improve production efficiencies, reduce costs, and enhance site sustainability. Development, assessment and validation of value-chain options for the establishment, recovery, transportation, handling and conditioning phases of these short rotation woody feedstock systems is also being performed. The refinement and demonstration of operational logistics along with the identification of supply and value-chain options will promote the concept of SRWC from basic research and development to the point of commercial uptake. 2007-08-01 2017-12-12 Natural Resources Canada brent.joss@canada.ca Nature and EnvironmentCanadaSilvicultureShort Rotation Woody CropsHybrid poplarWillowNatural resourcesForestsForest managementResearchAfforestation Short Rotation Woody Crop Site National Network of Research, Development and Demonstration Sites (English)SHP http://cfs.nrcan.gc.ca/fgp/srwc_en.zip Short Rotation Woody Crop Site National Network of Research, Development and Demonstration Sites (French)SHP http://cfs.nrcan.gc.ca/fgp/srwc_fr.zip Metadata (English)PDF http://cfs.nrcan.gc.ca/fgp/metadata.pdf Metadata (French)PDF http://cfs.nrcan.gc.ca/fgp/métadonnées.pdf
