McGavin, R. L., Bailleres, H., Lane, F. and Fehrmann, J. (2013) High value timber composite panels from hardwood plantation thinnings. Project Report. Department of Agriculture and Fisheries, Queensland.



Identifying processing strategies and products that suit young plantation hardwoods has proved challenging with low product recoveries and/or unmarketable products being the outcome of many trials. The production of rotary veneer has been demonstrated as an effective method for converting plantation hardwood trees. Across nine processing studies that included six different plantation species (Dunn’s white gum, spotted gum, Gympie messmate, spotted gum hybrid, red mahogany and western white gum), simple spindleless lathe technology was used to process 914 veneer billets totally 37.4 m3.
