Remember, if you want to coppice, you can still have height by leaving a couple of foot at the base instead of cutting it right back to ground level. It will keep them under control because they really are fast growers, mine put on several feet in its first year and more the following.
Alternatively, cut one trunk the first year and alternate thereafter to keep some foliage early in the year. These sleep in early spring although they never truly have a dormancy
Right plant for the right place
