Dear Harold,
     I live in the Pacific Northwest of the US and a few timber comapnies
are getting thier feet wet (pardon the pun) with drip irrigation for
hybrid cottonwood east of the Cascade range in Washington and Oregon.  You
might contact Steve Pottle at Boise Cascade Corporation in Wallula,
Washington.  James River Corporation is growing hybrid cottonwood (10,000
acres) in Western Washington/Oregon, but with 100+ inches of rain per
year, they aren't doing any irrigation.
