Impact of Stem Defect Agent Defects on Hardwood Wood Quality

Lawson, Simon. Impact of Stem Defect Agent Defects on Hardwood Wood Quality. Lead Agency: Department of Employment, Economic Development and Innovation (DEEDI).

Project Start: 9 October 2008

Project End:15 August 2013


Queensland's hardwood plantation industry is producing increasing volumes of sawlog, veneer and poles. Wood quality can sometimes be impaired in some plantation hardwoods when the growing trees are attacked by insect borers.

Susceptibility to borer damage varies with the species as well as site conditions or location. The risk model developed from this project will enable the plantation industry to match tree species with appropriate growing conditions in Queensland.
