Improving dimensional stability in plantation-grown Eucalyptus pilularis and E. dunnii

Improving dimensional stability in plantation-grown Eucalyptus pilularis and E. dunnii

This project sampled progeny trials of Eucalyptus pilularis and E. dunnii for a range of wood properties to determine:

  1. Comparison of non-destructive and destructive assessment techniques
  2. Understanding of the role of wood chemistry in, and genetic control of, wood behaviour, quality, drying and sawn wood characteristics;
  3. Development of a toolkit for wood quality examination

The results will assist with understanding the nature of sawn wood properties in the emerging E.dunnii and E. pilularis plantation estate and will guide tree breeding efforts for these species.
