Conference paper


Eucalyptus is one of the most widely utilized species for tree plantation, especially intended in the use for chemical pulp production [1]. E. globulus is a fast growing species in a moderate zone with an 8–10 year-rotation period [2]. The tree breeding programs are aiming to improve growth, pulp yield and strength in pulp and paper products because the elite tree selection contributes to reduce energy consumption, CO2 emission and pulp and paper cost.
