Properties and Uses of New Zealand Radiata Pine
Edited by J.A. Kininmouth & L.J. Whitehouse

Volume One: Wood Properties

The New Zealand forest industry is based almost entirely on one versatile and highly productive introduced tree - radiata pine (Pinus radiata D.Don.). New Zealand's radiata pine plantations provide for almost all domestic wood needs, and also for a substantial export trade in logs and processed wood products.

This book is a comprehensive account of the wood properties of New Zealand radiate pine and helps to explain why this species has come to occupy a pre-eminent place in the New Zealand wood industry. It reviews research carried out in this country over the past 50 or so years, providing up-to-date information on the formation, structure, and chemistry of the wood and bark, log quality, wood physical and mechanical properties, wood/water relationships, and biodeterioration.

This is a book for everyone who wishes to understand radiata pine as a wood material and who is interested in its further development, marketing and use.
