Genetic variation of natural durability traits in Eucalyptus cladocalyx (sugar gum)

Bush, David; McCarthy, Kevin; Meder, Roger

Description

INTRODUCTION: We present a study on genetic variation in natural durability traits of young-aged Eucalyptus cladocalyx, a species adapted to temperate, low rainfall regions. Our motivation was the production of naturally durable posts for applications such as vine trellises, a sector dominated by heavy metal preservative-treated wood in some of the world’s main wine-producing countries.
