Abstract: Eucalyptus species are native to Australia but grown extensively worldwide as short rotation hardwoods for a variety of products and as ornamentals. We describe their general importance with specific emphasis on existing and emerging markets as energy products and the potential to maximize their productivity as short rotation woody crops. Using experience in Florida USA and similar locations, we document their current energy applications and assess their productivity as short-term and likely long-term energy and related products.
Keywords: Eucalyptus; Eucalyptus grandis; Eucalyptus amplifolia; Corymbia torelliana; short rotation woody crops; ethanol; biofuels; silvichemicals.
