    Description

    The authors trace the development of a Eucalyptus reforestation program on private industrial forest land from early testing to production planting. Data is presented on a 14.2 hectare manna gum plantation which has produced an estimated yield of 481 cubic meters/ hectare after 20 years. Because manna gum has about 60 percent greater density than Douglas-fir or redwood, total dry weight yield from such stands may be about 3 times the equivalent of the two native species.
