About this book

Pinus radiata (radiata pine) is a versatile, fast-growing, medium-density softwood, suitable for a wide range of end-uses. Its silviculture is highly developed, and is built on a firm foundation of over a century of research, observation and practice. Radiata pine is often considered a model for growers of other plantation species. Sustainable Management of Pinus radiata Plantations explores current knowledge of, and experience with radiata pine forest plantation management and examines its long-term sustainability. The focus of Sustainable Management of Pinus radiata Plantations is on the principles and practices of growing radiata pine sustainably. It also looks ahead to emerging challenges facing radiata pine plantation management, such as the effects of climate change, new diseases and other threats, and meeting changing product needs and societal demands.
