Summary in English
The study presents results of 23 focus groups conducted among some 80 landowners of Quebec and the Prairie provinces. Four short-rotation afforestation and agroforestry systems mainly for the production of biomass for energy have been discussed. Two of those systems are willow-based riparian buffer systems and willow- or hybrid poplar-based alley cropping. The study enabled the identification of 47 perceived issues related to development and implementation of the four systems.
