Faster Growing Trees & Good Wood.

The Universtiy of Tenesse’s Institute of Agriculture released a paper titled “Are fast grown trees of low quality?” with some interesting revelations. PolyGenomX Partner Allan Abbott had this to say,

“After an in-depth discussion of what defines quality in wood, the conclusion is that “Healthy trees grow more quickly, but this does not necessarily imply a reduction in wood quality. For a given species, larger and older trees are usually the most valuable for wood products.” Larger trees are better, and that’s what we produce . . . nice to see it confirmed!”
