Saligna eucalyptus trees, planted in Hawaii in 1961 at spacings ranging from 8-by-8 to 14-by-14 feet have grown rapidly in height and diameter. After 10 years, trees in all spacings averaged more than 90 feet tall. Average diameter ranged from 7.6 inches in the 8-foot spacing to 10.6 inches in the 14-foot spacing. The wide spacings tested appear to be better than narrow spacings for growing sawtimber.
