Abstract

Samples of Pinus caribaea, Pinus oocarpa, Campnosperma brevipetiolata, Eucalyptus deglupta, Terminalia brassii and Terminalia calamansanai, all of which have shown potential for growing in plantations in Solomon Islands, were examined to determine their potential value for the production of pulpwood chips for export. Details are given of growing conditions, size of trees, wood characteristics, fibre dimensions and pulping by sulphate, soda and soda/anthraquinone processes. P. caribaea, P. oocarpa, C. brevipetiolata and F. deglupta were all considered promising for the production of pulpwood. T. brassii and T. calamansanai, both of which required very severe chemical conditions to pulp, were not considered promising.
