Description: Physical and mechanical properties were determined for saligna eucalyptus (Eucalyptus saligna, Smith) grown in Hawaii. In comparison with wood of the same species grown in Australia, saligna eucalyptus grown in Hawaii was lower in density, shrinkage, and compressive strength parallel to grain; it was about equal in strength in bending and shear; and it was stiffer. Compared to commercially important Mainland species, saligna eucalyptus grown in Hawaii is considered exceptionally stiff and the green wood is stronger than average for its density: however, strength of air- dry wood and hardness of green and air-dry wood are considered about average for the density.
