The effect of initial planting density on branching characteristics of Eucalyptus pilularis and E. grandis

Kearney, Dean; James, Ryde; Montagu, Kelvin; Smith, Geoff B.


Branch-related defects can significantly decrease the quality of plantation eucalypt logs grown for solid-wood products. In this study we examined the effect of initial spacing on branching characteristics of 5-y-old plantation-grown Eucalyptus grandis and E. pilularis on the North Coast of New South Wales. For each sample tree all branches on the lower stem (the butt log, 0.3-6 m) were assessed for diameter, angle and condition. Trees were sampled in plots grown at four initial planting...[Show more]
