Preliminary observations on the utilisation and wood properties of plantation teak (Tectona grandis ) and African mahogany (Khaya senegalensis) grown near Kununurra, Western Australia



Preliminary observations on the utilisation and wood properties of plantation teak (Tectona grandis ) and African mahogany (Khaya senegalensis) grown near Kununurra, Western Australia



Australian Forestry 61(2): 120-126



The wood properties and wood quality were assessed of single trees of 22-yr-old teak (Tectona grandis) and 8-yr-old African mahogany (Khaya senegalensis), grown in irrigated plantations in northern Western Australia. Logs were cut into 25 mm backsawn boards using a thin kerf 'Wood-mizer' bandsaw, and the boards dried to 7% moisture content in solar kilns.
