Eucalyptus globulus. Impregnability in relation with plantation and crop

IRG/WP 92-2402

D Dirol

Eucalyptus globulus Lasill is currently classified in Pr EN 350 on the basis of the characteristics of the first log. In practice, there are usually several following crops of branches developped on each stump in plantations. Up to a diameter of 8 cm, round wood of 2nd crop and further crops present a maximum of sapwood and characteristics which differ significantly from the basic classification and justify an amendment of the standard for the purpose of use in ground contact as impregnated stakes.
