It was found out that Sumy Region can join the real solution to the problem of energy saving and development of bioenergy within the framework of the creation of Matsuda energy willow plantations. In the process of research, the planning of growing and the effectiveness of using Matsuda energy willow for energy supply in the North-Eastern Forest Steppe of Ukraine is indicated, the perspective of growing, processing and using bioenergy crops in the Sumy region is proven. To realize the goal of the research, the following tasks were performed: scientific approaches to the study of energy saving and bioenergy problems were analyzed; the peculiarities of the natural resource potential of Sumy Region are considered; possible observations of the development and growth of the Matsuda willow were made; the real needs and possibilities of growing energy willow as a bioenergy crop in the Sumy region were investigated; Some technological measures for growing S. matsudana container planting material are considered in the work: for the creation of forest plantations. It has been proven that under the conditions of root propagation of the studied taxon, it is necessary to harvest microshoots before the bud swelling phase. It was established experimentally that the reproducibility of the cutting material is not affected by its thickness. It has been proven that as the cutting thickness increases (0.6-1.5 cm), the mass of planting material increases. When using microshoots with a thickness of 0.6 cm, the weight of plants was 54.13 g, and in the control – 191.12 g, which is 3.53 times less. In the process of research, the issue of the effect of the volume of the pot on the mass of the root system, the aerial part and the area of the leaf surface of the planting material was considered. When using pots with a volume of 0.75 l, the leaf surface area was 2471.3 cm2, which is 23.1% less than in the control (1.2 l). It was found that the substrate affects the quality indicators of the planting material of the studied taxon: the best biometric indicators were obtained under the conditions of using a highly nutritious substrate.
