Abstract

The wood properties of plantation grown trees are known to be quite variable. Owing to the variation that exists the potential for improving wood properties of plantation grown trees is great but to do so many trees have to be sampled. Typically methods employed to measure important wood properties are time consuming, expensive and often destructive, i.e. the tree has to be cut down, hindering the efforts of tree breeders to improve wood properties. To adequately measure the variation that exists rapid, cost-effective methods for measuring important wood properties of large numbers of samples are required.
