From tests with 10-yr-old billets, notes are given on general appearance, drying, shrinkage, movement, durability, and machining. It is considered suitable for solid-wood applications (joinery, furniture, flooring).

The symptoms and distribution are described of a black butt rot of Cordia alliodora, first observed on the species in 1977, and caused by Phellinus noxius. The disease is not a serious problem at present.

The root ball (or bag), stump, root ball/stump and bare root methods were tested for planting Cordia alliodora at a site in Quintana Roo, Mexico. Survival, total height and diameter after 2 yr showed no differences between the planting methods.

Literature on Cordia alliodora is reviewed, and results are given from trials with various types of plants: (1) intact container plants 20-25 cm high, 4-6 mm root-collar diameter (rcd); (2) cut-back container plants 40-45 cm high, 4-6 mm rcd, cut...
