Description: Intensively cultured plantations of Populus 'Tristis # 1' produce more than 10 mt/ha/year of woody biomass at most spacings as long as they are harvested when mean annual biomass increment (MABI) culminates. In addition, fully stocked plantations produce up to 4.4 mt/ha of leaf litter. Plantations of other poplar clones produce about 30% more woody biomass, but leaf litter production is about the same as in P. 'Tristis # 1'. Because projected biomass productions of P. 'Tristis # 1' were 42 to 182% higher than the actual productions, caution must be exercised when using projected production values. The discrepancy increased with age. P. 'Tristis # 1', although less productive than several other poplar clones in our tests, showed no major deficiencies in 12 years of experimentation. Various P. x euramericana clones have suffered sun scalding in northern Wisconsin, and other clones, including the highly productive NE-299 (NC-5331), have suffered wind damage. P. 'Tristis # 1' should be officially recommended for planting in the Lake States.
