The Impact of Growth Stress on Sawn Distortion and Log End Splitting on 32-Year-Old Plantation Blue Gum

The Impact of Growth Stress on Sawn Distortion and Log End Splitting on 32-Year-Old Plantation Blue Gum

This project quantified the relationship between sawn timber distortion and log end splitting with growth strain measured at the surface of standing trees; investigated the impact of log end splitting on sawn volume recovery; and used wood characteristics estimated from breast height cores to identify trees prone to excessive sawn board distortion and log end splitting.

The expected outcomes were an improved understanding of the potential for plantation grown eucalypts to produce high quality sawlogs
