Australian blackwood (Acacia melanoxylon), is a fast-growing, high-quality, appearance-grade timber species native to eastern Australia. Some of its key wood properties are percentage heartwood, heartwood colour, basic density, wood stiffness and green moisture content. Variation in these properties affects log value, processing and marketing. This study aims to understand how genetics and environment affect these wood properties. Stem cores were taken from 16 open-pollinated blackwood families… CONTINUE READING
