Abstract

This report is about selecting eucalypt hybrid material that can be grown for pulp production on saline lands. The report describes the production, morphology, selection and seedling growth of E. globulus x camaldulensis hybrids. It also describes the field performance of E. globulus x camaldulensis seedlings and clones, E. camaldulensis seedlings and clones, and E. globulus seedlings in trials on saline and non-saline sites. Preliminary assessment of 5-6 year old trees for fibre and sawlog properties was also undertaken.
