Accurate prediction of whole-tree wood basic density (BD) from indirect density measures is important for estimating Eucalytpus globulus breeding values and genetic gain. We measured 100 E. globulus trees at 6.5 years of age on each of a high productivity site (Albany) and a low productivity site (Esperance), sampling 16 full-sib families and seven open-pollinated ‘check’ seedlots. On each tree we assessed pilodyn penetration at 1.3 m and BD of: (a) the outer 10 mm which was penetrated by the… CONTINUE READING
