How to Make Biomass Energy Sustainable Again | LOW←TECH MAGAZINE

super interesting article about coppices and pollarding. "[A]round two-thirds of the wood that is harvested in developing societies is harvested sustainably.... People collect mainly dead wood, they grow a lot of wood outside the forest, they coppice and pollard trees, and they prefer the use of multipurpose trees, which are too valuable to cut down. The motives are the same as those of our ancestors: people have no access to fossil fuels and are thus tied to a local wood supply, which needs to be harvested and transported manually."
