SUMMARY The two methods for removing useless overhead cover following final fellings in eucalypt forests, namely felling and ringbarking, are compared, with reasons for and against each method given. Some estimates are made of the durability of ringbarked trees in the alpine ash forest....
SUMMARY A study using seeds of 23 Victorian eucalypts has indicated that most seed-lots of some species, a few of others, and possibly none of some species require light for satisfactory germination. Germination of some seeds appears to be inhibited by continuous light.
SUMMARY It was observed, particularly in Eucalyptus pauciflora and E. dives, that seed following storage entered into a state of dormancy which could be broken by a number of methods, the most practical being water-soaking for 48 hours. This dormancy is common in the Renantherae and may be...
SUMMARY Termite attack is of no significance in the extensive plantations of Pinus radiata in Australia. However, when the timber is placed in service it is frequently damaged extensively, particularly by species of Coptotermes, Schedorhinotermes, and Heterotermes. Laboratory tests confirm that...
SUMMARY Studies on the trace element content of selected pine needles from Pinus radiata and associated soils have shown that the roots of these trees are gaining access to the basaltic soils buried beneath the podzolized aeolian sands of some areas in the Mt. Burr forest. The influence of these...
