    Description

    A trial planting to compare the biomass production of 9 tree species was established in May 1979. Species compared were Acacia melanoxylon, Casuarina cunninghamiana, Casuarina equisitifolia, Eucalyptus camaldulensis, E. dalrympleana, E. regnans, Populus hybrid, and Taxodium distichum. E. globulus was substituted for E. regnans when the latter failed to survive.

    E. camaldulensis and E. dalrympleana were superior to all other species.

    Other commercial plantings have been established in the intermediate and interior valleys of Riverside and San Diego Counties. Eucalyptus species included in such plantings are E. bicostata, E. camaldulensis, E. camphora, E. deanei, E. globulus, E. grandis, E. rudis, E. saligna, E. tereticornis, E. trabuti, and E. viminalis.

    Observations are being made on the comparative performance of the different species and their response to varying stocking rates and cultural practices.
