Summary This report was prepared as part of a nationwide cooperative project, which aimed to summarise the national knowledge base on clear wood production in eucalypts. This report collates literature, both from Australia and internationally, and recent information on eucalypt plantation silviculture from unpublished research and field experience. Silvicultural techniques such as pruning, are used by growers to produce logs with a high proportion of clear wood suitable for high value end uses. However, there is little information available to growers on how best to apply such techniques to eucalypts. This report summaries the research results to date thereby providing a basis for the development of species and regional specific pruning regimes by growers and advisers and helping to direct future silvicultural research in planted eucalypts
