YESCAS ALBARRAN, César Augusto et al. Native trees with dendroenergy potential for the design of agroforestry technologies in Tepalcingo, Morelos. Rev. Mex. Cienc. Agríc [online]. 2016, vol.7, n.spe16, pp.3301-3313. ISSN 2007-0934.

The aim of this research is to identify native trees with dendroenergy potential serve to design agroforestry technologies in the common Los Sauces, municipality of Tepalcingo, Morelos. It is systematizing traditional knowledge of species and harvesting process, for which we start from the assumption that in the common Los Sauces there are tree species dendroenergy potential for designing agroforestry technologies and these are the ones most demand among consumers. According to the quality of the wood species selected are: tepehuaje (Lysiloma acapulcense), tlahuitol (Lysiloma divaricata), tecolhuixtle (Mimosa benthamii), brazilwood (Haematoxylum brasiletto), licorice (Eysenhardtia polystachya) and white cubata (Acacia pennatula). Regarding agroforestry technologies for the common Los Sauces, scattered trees in pastures and hedgerows were proposed because land use is associated with livestock and fuelwood needs can be covered with trees arranged in these fields. The methodology consisted of interviews with housewives and their husbands and sons in charge of chopping wood, with which the most sought-native species were located, to select the greatest potential for integration into agroforestry technologies. Its heat of combustion variables, ash, moisture, density and germination protocol were determined to measure the quality of firewood.
