Measuring the girth of a Radiata Pine

Top
Canberra-based forest industry researchers Dr Harry Wu and Dr Colin Matheson measure the girth of a Radiata Pine as part of the Swifter Pines project.

Besides rapid growth, dramatic improvements in the wood quality of this species are expected in the next generation of trees. Recent work also includes the development of trees adapted to low rainfall (400-600mm p.a.) regions.

CSIRO's Radiata Pine breeding program is estimated to have already returned to Australia financial benefits 16 times greater that the cost of the program.
