Australian Forest Woods : Characteristics, Uses and Identification Hardback

Description

Australian Forest Woods describes about 130 of the most significant Australian forest trees and their wood.

The introductory sections introduce the reader to the uniqueness and usefulness of forest trees.

The book examines the forest tree species and their wood with photographs, botanical descriptions and a summary of the characteristics of the wood.

A section on wood identification includes fundamental information on tree growth and wood structure, as well as images of the basic characteristics.

With over 900 images, this is the most comprehensive guide ever written on Australian forest woods, both for the amateur and the professional wood enthusiast.

Macrophotographs of the wood are shown in association with a physical description of wood characteristics, which will aid identification.

This technique was developed by Jean-Claude Cerre, France, and his macrophotographs are included in the book.
