Saligna Eucalyptus Growth in a Five-Year-Old Spacing Study in Hawaii
Abstract:Saligna eucalyptus trees planted at spacings of 8 by 8 feet, 10 by 10 feet, 12 by 12 feet, and 14 by 14 feet have all made very rapid height and diameter growth. In five years, trees in all spacings averaged over 72 feet in height, dominant and codominant trees averaged over 85 feet. Diameter growth rate, unlike height growth rate, increased with spacing. Average d.b.h. ranged from 6.2 inches in the 8- by 8-foot spacing to 7.9 inches in the 14- by 14-foot spacing. For the same spacings the average d.b.h. of the dominant and codominant trees was 7.5 and 8.9 inches, respectively.
