Biomass potential for individual species

Eucalyptus denticulata

Species potential for biomass > Species potential for E.denticulata

Eucalyptus denticulata is closely related to E. nitens, and was formerly known as the Errinundra provenance of E. nitens. It appears to be slightly slower-growing and possibly slightly less hardy than true nitens, but reportedly has higher wood density than nitens at age 8 years.

In contrast to E. nitens, it appears to coppice freely. It is exceptionally windfirm on very thin mountain soils in Portugal. There is unlikely to be much provenance variation in this species.
