Abstract

Wood density variability in Eucalyptus species.

Abstract

A study was made of the basic density of Eucalyptus dunnii, E. deanei, E. grandis and E. saligna from different provenances having different increments and ages. Density variations in the radial (pith to bark) direction were determined for E. grandis and E. saligna. Some of the E. grandis and E. saligna provenances had a sufficiently large variation in basic density to merit tree improvement studies.
