Eucalyptus Clonal Nursery: Rooting Cuttings Video


We receive frequent inquiries at EUCALYPTOLOGICS on Eucalyptus being or not possible to propagate from cuttings. And we were running out of examples to show it is very possible. Fortunately the Woodpeckers of Prof. Mário Takao Inoue & Prof. Antonio José de Araujo (SEAA, Universidade Estadual do Centro-Oeste, Paraná) come to our rescue.

Industrias Klabin do Paraná de Celulose SA (IKPC), better known as KLABIN, is one of the of the Giants of Brazilian Forestry. By the time Navarro de Andrade started industrial scale Eucalyptus cultivation in 1908, Mauricio Klabin started building his first paper mill. By 1934 Klabin acquired Fazenda Monte Alegre, near Tibaji and Telêmaco Borba. Today, this 220,000 hectare estate comprises 55% tree farms and 40% Nature Reserves (Araucaria angustifolia) and one of the largest integrated pulp & paper mills in South America (1.1 million tons paper/year after recent capacity expansion). Its main crops are planted conifers, Pinus taeda and Pinus elliottii, but they cultivate vast acreages of Eucalyptus grandis too. And they grow the Brazilian way: better, faster, cheaper. For Eucalyptus, this means R+D in Genetic Improvement, and a fast way to deploy genetic gains in the field: clonal silviculture.
