Sampling Plantation Eucalypts for Wood and Fibre Properties

Sampling Plantation Eucalypts for Wood and Fibre Properties

This book was written to help the forest industry assess wood quality by using non-destructive samples taken from specific points within a tree. It is the first compilation of research data on sampling of eucalypts, describing new methods and tools for rapid and cost-effective analysis.

The book provides information needed to design a sampling program, obtain and process wood samples, and shows how to relate the data to an average tree value.
