Supply of raw material from natural forest for wood-based industries is restricted due to depletion of forest cover. Extensive plantations of fast- growing species are being raised allover the country under forestry programme to meet the ever-increasing demand of timber industry. In order that plantation-grown species could be rationally utilised, a need has been felt to determine their strength properties and study their suitability for different end uses. Study of strength properties of plantation grown timber species, such as Acacia nilotica (babul), P. falcataria, Cocos nucifera (coconut), Dalbergia sissoo (sissoo) and Hevea brasiliensis (rubber-wood), E. camaldulensis, Eucalyptus tereticornisjE.hybrid (eucalypts), Grevillea robusta (silver oak), Melia composita (malabar neem), Tectona grandis (teak), Cupressus goveniana, Cupressus lucitonica (cypress), Acacia mangium, Acacia crasicarpa, Pterocarpus dalbergiodes (andaman padauk), Simarouba glauca and Tecomella undulata (rohida) of different age groups were under taken and reccomended for various industrial and engineering uses.
