Lawrence, I am a huge fan of rocket stoves. As little fuel as they need - just twigs - does Haiti have even that much wood locally available?

The task would be to find fast-growing coppiceable fuelwood species for the region. Anyone know which trees fit this bill? First place to look would be Dominican Republic: right next door, and hasn't been deforested as Haiti has.

And while those trees are being grown, the locals need an interim supply of sticks to fuel those wonderful, high-efficiency, low-emission rocket stoves.
