SUMMARY In the wood from trees in a 5-year old plantation and a 30-year old stand of natural regeneration of blackbutt (Eucalyptus pilularis Sm.) in New South Wales the basic density of the wood, length, wall-thickness and diameter of the fibres, diameters of vessels and percentage of vessel tissue increased with age; and the number of vessels per unit area decreased. In the wood formed at 30 years of age the basic density, length and diameter of fibres, and the diameter of vessels, were less…

Poplars are among the world’s fastest growing industrial wood, which is grown in pure or mixed plantations as well as in association with agricultural crops. Poplars are also widely cultivated on the
Assessment of Vessel Anatomical Features in Eucalyptus camaldulensis by Pyrolysis-Gas Chromatography
Eucalyptus camaldulensis plays an important role as one of the major plantation species for pulpwood especially in sub-tropical regions. Tree selection for high pulp yield and strength in the
Variation of vessel lumen diameter in radial direction as an indication of the juvenile wood growth in oak
increasing growth-ring age, the lumen diameters of earlywood and latewood vessels and the number of earlywood vessels per unit area increased, especially in the core zone of stem cross-section; the
CLONAL AND SITE VARIATION OF VESSELS IN 7-YEAR-OLD EUCALYPTUS GLOBULUS
TLDR
Pith to bark variation of vessel anatomy was studied in 17 clones of 7-year-old Eucalyptus globulus trees grown on two sites in Portugal, and vessels appeared to be generally larger and occupied a greater proportion of total cross-sectional area.
Changes in sapwood permeability and anatomy with tree age and height in the broad-leaved evergreen species Eucalyptus regnans.
TLDR
The results support the hypothesis of an increase in sapwood permeability at breast height with age, and the significance of tree-level changes in sap wood permeability for stand-level water relations is discussed.
The effect of climate variables on sapwood anatomy of eucalyptus
TLDR
The major finding is that xylem vessels in eucalypts taper at variable rates from the base of the stem to the top of the tree, depending on species and environment.
Wood anatomy and biometric parameters variation of Eucalyptus globulus clones
TLDR
Considering the commercial importance of tree volume, vessel and fiber anatomy in the pulping and papermaking process, it is suggested that the information given in this study may be used as an additional criteria for the selection of E. globulus.
Sawing and grade recovery of 25-year-old Eucalyptus fastigata, E. globoidea, E. muelleriana and E. pilularis.
The processing characteristics of 25-year-old Eucalyptus fastigata Deane et Maiden, E. globoidea Blakely, E. muelleriana Howitt and E. pilularis Sm. from Rotoehu Forest, New Zealand, were evaluated
Paleotemperature estimation from dicotyledonous wood anatomical characters
Following an earlier study documenting the relationships between wood anatomical features and climate, we examine the utility of dicotyledonous wood assemblages in assessing paleoclimate. The wood

SUMMARY The basic density, mean fibre length and polyphenol content of the wood of young plantation trees and old naturally grown trees of flooded gum, Eucalyptus grandis (Hill) Maiden are reported.
THE VARIATION OF FIBRE LENGTH WITHIN ONE TREE OF EUCALYPTUS REGNANS, F.v.M.
TLDR
It has been found that the fibres of the last-formed late wood were consistently longer than those of the early wood in an investigation of fibre lengths within one tree of Eucalyptus regnans, 50 years old and 172 feet high.
