Table 6 Mean wood properties and significance of the differences among plantation sites of E. nitens

From: Radial variation in modulus of elasticity, microfibril angle and wood density of veneer logs from plantation-grown Eucalyptus nitens

  1. Results are presented based on unweighted and weighted disk mean values from samples taken 2.5 m aboveground level. All the site means were not significantly different (P > 0.05) among the sites according to the Tukey-Kramer multiple comparisons, so the superscript numbers denoted the site ranking
