Abstract

This project evaluated the timber quality, processing and performance characteristics of 19-year-old Eucalyptus cloeziana (Gympie messmate) and 15-year-old Eucalyptus pellita (red mahogany). Studies were undertaken to evaluate wood and mechanical properties, accelerated seasoning and veneer and plywood production.

Above-ground and in-ground durability field tests were established at three locations in Queensland. Ground proixmity tests and L-joint tests were installed to gather data applicable to above-ground, weather-exposed end-use applications, and stake tests were installed to gather data applicable to in-ground, weather-exposed end-use applications.
