This project aims to provide information to growers and processors about the wood properties, timber potential and likely merchantable volume of these species which are increasingly being considered for use in future forests. In particular we wish to establish if higher grades of structural timbers can be produced from these hardwood species relative to our domestic softwood species.
Samples are being tested and the data are currently being analysed. Reports are expected during 2019-2020.
