Advantages of prefreezing for reducing shrinkage-related degrade in eucalypts: General considerations and review of the literature

  title={Advantages of prefreezing for reducing shrinkage-related degrade in eucalypts: General considerations and review of the literature},
  author={Jugo Ilic},
  journal={Wood Science and Technology},
Difficulties associated with the drying of ash eucalypts including collapse and internal checking, are discussed briefly. Prefreezing is one method that has been used successfully as a pretreatment for the drying of both hardwoods and softwoods from temperate and tropical regions. Prefreezing has produced marked reductions in shrinkage, collapse and drying degrade of the heartwood in the following species: California redwood, black walnut, black cherry, tanoak, toon, bamboo, and eucalypts… CONTINUE READING
