Evaluating the potential of Eucalyptus bosistoana essential oil (2022)
Type of ContentJournal Article
Eucalypt essential oils are manufactured at commercial scale in many countries, but not in New Zealand. Recent research at the University of Canterbury School of Forestry investigated the potential for essential oil to be produced as an economic by-product of Eucalyptus bosistoana plantations. This eucalypt is a Class 1 durable species, selected by the NZ Dryland Forests Initiative for genetic improvement. The conclusion reached was that producing commercial essential oil as a by-product of timber plantations may well have economic potential.
