future firewood

 The willow that were planted in March have all shown some growth despite the poor weather. They were 'biomass' varieties Salix cinera and Salix smithiana. I also took cuttings of Salix alba at the time, which have rooted well and I'll have to think about potting on already. The willows will be coppiced or pollarded but I also planted some alder. Whether these can be successfully coppiced or not, I'm unsure yet.
