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 management of pulpwood forests has attracted interest in the use of plantations with short term rotations to reduce the pulp cost and atmospheric CO2 . The non-destructive method is preferable in the quality breeding program and the increment core method has an advantage to handle many samples since the core can be drilled out easily from the trunk without felling the tree down . However, the estimation of whole-tree properties by this indirect selection method requires significantly high relationships between wood and pulp properties.
