A study of the suitability of Calabrian pine (Pinus brutia Ten.) for pulp and paper manufacture

Turkish Journal of Agriculture and Forestry 23(supp 3): 589-597

A study of the suitability of Calabrian pine (Pinus brutia Ten.) for pulp and paper manufacture

In this study, carefully selected test materials were taken from Calabrian pines growing naturally in Turkey. The aim of this research was to determine the morphological properties of the wood fibre of the Calabrian pine and the suitability of these properties for pulping. Twenty sample trees were collected from 5 different regions (Sucati-Kahramanmaras, Edremit-Balkesir, Kemalpasa-Izmir, Ylanl-Mugla and Melli (Bucak)-Burdur) The test samples were taken from tree stems at a height of 2.30 m.
