Plantation Grown Timber. Flooded Gum E-Grandis
The following results were derived from a Melbourne, Australia trial drying load of 12 year old flooded gum (e.grandis) timber sourced from central New South Wales plantations. Because this material is regarded as too difficult to dry” it has traditionally been sold as low value green sawn packaging material. “Solarkilns” generation four cyclic technology was used to perform the trial, most notably using a cyclic drying prescription to reduce drying stress to low levels.
