Silvicultural systems to optimise value from northern Australian Mahogany Plantations

This project will identify the silvicultural inputs necessary to optimize the value of the African mahogany (Khaya senegalensis) from existing and future plantations in northern Australia, by determining the impact of silvicultural inputs (pruning, mid-rotation thinning and fertiliation) on the log and wood quality of the Northern Territory’s African mahogany for the market specifications, whilst ensuring the sustainability and profitability of Territory forestry growers.
