Title: Tree Species for Plantations in the Grantic Uplands of Puerto Rico

Author: Geary, T. F.; Briscoe, C. B.;

Date: 1972

Source: FSRP-ITF-14. Rio Piedras, Puerto Rico: Forest Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture, Institute of Tropical Forestry

Publication Series: Forest Economic Report

Description: Thirty-two tree species were tested for adaptability in Puerto Rico's humid, granitic uplands, a region of sandy, well drained, erosive soils. Based on adaptability and potential wood uses the following species are recommended for timber plantations: Honduras pine for most landowners; mahoe for those willing to speculate on development of a demand for this cabinet wood; kadam for those with special interest in this lightweight, general utility wood, and those with severe weed problems; and eucalyptus or casuarina for owners interested only in post and pole crops.

Keywords: Puerto Rico
