    Several species of eucalypts as well as European black alder show promise as exotic hardwood pulpwood species. Each meets the following important requirements: (1) has fast growth rate on typical all-weather logging sites of moderate to poor quality,(2) produces genetically improved seed with management (3) does not produce potentially noxious seedling populations in the wild, and (4) yields good quality pulp by conventional processes.
