Technical note: The suitability of young fast-grown radiata pine clones for conversion into vineyard trellis posts
In this note, we test the hypothesis that vineyard trellis posts of the required size and strength properties can be produced from young radiata pine trees obtained from clonal plantations established using a dense stocking of physiologically aged cuttings selected for fast growth, good straightness, aboveaverage juvenile wood density, and fine multinodal branching. Radiata pine trees from four different clones were all large enough to be converted into vineyard posts when they were 6 yr old....[Show more]
