Abstract

Based upon earlier studies (by Sacré, E. (1974a and b) Bulletin de la Société Royale Forestière de Belgique) and on a literature review (from 1960 onwards), the author summarizes information on the wood anatomy, physical and mechanical wood properties, machining behaviour (industrial sawing, planing, surfacing, shaping, mortising and nailing) and end uses of wood of the white willow (Salix alba).
