Re: Harvesting willow
Hey there!!

Thanks for the nice comments!! :-)

Well chop willow is used for bioenergy and for now it is
most on district heating station that it is used instead of
bales of straw and oil. But maybe in a few years it will
become interesting for farmes in Denmark to grow willow for
heating on the farm.

If you like to see video of the harvesting willow. Then look
at: and then Afdelinger - Planteavl
- Fotoalbum and then Pilehost 1. del (part 1) and 2. del
(part 2)!!!! It is good fun!!!;-)

Take care and have a good one!! - Thomas

Re: Harvesting willow
Thank you Thomas
I see the video of the harvesting willow ,the noise is
shrill and the 860 mechanical work hard.
But I can't understand this harvesting is profitable.A big
machine Jaguar 860 and a lot of tractors to make harvest. A
lot of energy is used to do energy!!!!!
The willow is farmed or uncultivatied ?
Re: Harvesting willow
Hi Hervé

The willow is farmed and there is a lot of expenses with
growing willow. But the price of oil in Denmark is very high
so now a lot of people are looking for alternatives for
heating. A company in Denmark that makes chip board are now
trying to use chop willow, so maybe there will be a new
market for farmes that grow willow. Willow is harvest every
2 to 4 years and grow for 25 years so in the beginning it is
very expensively but in the long run there is a good chance
of making money!!! :-)

Take care! Thomas
Re: Harvesting willow
Thanks for this explanation
This practice reminds me the peat harvesting in Finland or
Ireland.In a book I see pictures ,an MF2640 with large
wheels or caterpillar harvest the peat for heating.
