Wood Quality Research: SWP Technical Reports 

The NZDFI is a partner in the Forest Growers Research  Specialty Wood Products Research Partnership (SWP).

This is a seven year (2015-2022) government/industry partnership which is managing research into specialty species. Any significant progress in SWP-funded research is reported via Technical Reports, which are all freely available.

NZDFI wood quality research is led by Associate Professor Clemens Altaner. Full details of on-going wood-quality research can be found in our six-monthly Project Updates.
