Wow what an amazing set of photos....makes you want to build a new house in E. globulus.

I have sent the link onto a few 'eucalyptus' friends, the coments have been 'Brilliant stuff' and 'was a bity miffed that there was not a "mediterranian beauty" reclining on the plywood beach seat...what is wrong with the Spanish...dont they realise that kiwi (New Zealand) blokes like looking at the beautiful wooden recliners and their contents??' and 'this is a fantastic example of what we could/should be doing here in New Zealand'. Thanks again Gus for bring this to our attention.

I shall forward the comments to the authors of this booklet. They will appreciate!

This would be a huge topic with many important subtopics and details, but maybe the general message is that there is a double path.

One way from the trees to the product, from timber properties ("what the trees can give") to those things that can be done in a factory ("what we can make of them"). There are limits in both angles.

The other way, from industrial process to product, from grade recoveries ("what we could get well done from that timber") to those things that are or are not viable to be done ("what we could get done and make it become a world class product").

If people were told 25 years ago that some of these final products could be achieved with E. grandis, E. urograndis, E. saligna, E. globulus or E. nitens "fast grown" plantation timbers (to name a few examples) the levels of skepticism among growers but also industry would be quite noticeable. Sometimes you only believe it when you see it

It is a different timber world to that one of "slow grown" logs from natural forests or fast grown conifers (pines and friends). But if it is possible here, in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Uruguay, South Africa or Australia (to name a few), I do not see why it could not be possible in Kiwiland. What is sure is that it needs of joint effort from both growers and industry. You have all the essential pieces of the puzzle there already: suitable land and climate, skilled growers, experience growing different eucalypts for many years, a sizeable timber resource of this type, and a world class timber industry. It could be done
