  1. Estimation of taper rates and volume of smaller-sized logs in spotted gum saw timber plantations in Southeast Queensland, Australia

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern Hemisphere Forestry Journal
    Spotted gum (Corymbia citriodora subsp. variegata) is a popular tree species for hardwood saw timber plantations in Southeast Queensland (SEQ), Australia. In many parts of the world, logs up to 10cm top diameter are considered to be merchantable logs and...
  2. Determining the effect of tree size, bark-wood bond strength and tree form on the productivity of an excavator-based harvester in <em>Acacia mearnsii</em> in the KwaZulu-Natal forestry region of South Africa

    Determining the effect of tree size, bark-wood bond strength and tree form on the productivity of an excavator-based harvester in <em>Acacia mearnsii</em> in the KwaZulu-Natal forestry region of South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern Forests: a Journal of Forest Science
    The aim of this study was to determine the effect of tree size, bark-wood bond strength and tree form on the productivity of cut-to-length harvesting of Acacia mearnsii, using an excavator-based harvester with a SP Maskiner harvester head in the...
  3. Performance of <em>Eucalyptus dunnii</em> as influenced by vegetation control when felled at nine years in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

    Performance of <em>Eucalyptus dunnii</em> as influenced by vegetation control when felled at nine years in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern Forests: a Journal of Forest Science
    In 1997, a trial was initiated to determine the impact of eight vegetation control treatments on the growth of Eucalyptus dunnii Maiden at a warm-temperate site in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands, South Africa. The treatments included a Weedy and Weed-free check,...
  4. Estimating wood volume from canopy area in deciduous woodlands of Zimbabwe

    Estimating wood volume from canopy area in deciduous woodlands of Zimbabwe

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern Forests: a Journal of Forest Science
    In this study we tested the predictive ability of canopy area in estimating wood volume in deciduous woodlands of Zimbabwe. The study was carried out in four sites of different climatic conditions. We used regression analysis to statistically quantify the...
  5. A taper function for <em>Pseudotsuga menziesii</em> plantations in Spain

    A taper function for <em>Pseudotsuga menziesii</em> plantations in Spain

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern Forests: a Journal of Forest Science
    Five stem taper models belonging to three different taper function categories were fitted to data corresponding to 282 Pseudotsuga menziesii trees. The trees were selected in the area surrounding 61 research plots installed in Galicia, Asturias and the Basque Country,...
  6. Rotation-end financial performance of vegetation control on <em>Eucalyptus smithii</em> in South Africa

    Rotation-end financial performance of vegetation control on <em>Eucalyptus smithii</em> in South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern Forests: a Journal of Forest Science
    Control of competing vegetation during eucalypt regeneration is important but the cost-benefit of varying levels of control is not well understood. A trial was initiated to quantify the impact of five vegetation control treatments on Eucalyptus smithii R.T.Baker. to determine...
  7. Site Relationships for Some Wood Properties of Pine Species in Plantation Forests of Southern Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Forestry Journal
    Although genetic variation in wood properties of the three main pine species planted in southern Africa is high, there are important site relationships.
  8. Impact of Wood Quality Assessments on Future Fibre Resources in the Pulp and Paper-making Industry

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Forestry Journal
    Recent evidence from research in Europe has indicated that individual trees can be sampled for their pulping properties by the removal of small quantities (5–50 g) of wood at about breast height (1,3 m above ground). Work began at Sappi's...
  9. Effect of Initial Spacing and Thinning on Some Wood Properties of <em>Eucalyptus grandis</em>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Forestry Journal
    A study was made of the effect of thinning intensity on wood density and some wood anatomical properties and their within-tree variation patterns, as well as the extent to which the development of growth-stress splits in logs and sawn boards...
  10. The Effects of Phosphorus and Dolomitic Lime on the Production and Volumetrical Conversion Factors of <em>Eucalyptus grandis</em> Wood

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Forestry Journal
    The effects of phosphorus and dolomitic lime applications on the stacked wood volume, dry wood weight and form, bark and stacking factors of Eucalyptus grandis Hill ex Maiden trees are presented. The rates of phosphorus (0 kg, 200 kg and...
