De stichting van een boschbedrijf in Andalusie : een bedrijfsanalyse

P.H. Burgers

Research output: Thesisinternal PhD, WU


The author described his search for the most profitable way of bringing into culture 5000 ha in Andalusia, west-south-west of Seville, on an extensive sand plateau probably of diluvial origin. By appraisal of the trees and crops already thriving in Andalusia, he settled for Eucalyptus globulus, taking into account that there would be a ready demand for young heart-free wood for the paper industry.
The most profitable exploitation was as coppice on a rotation of 8-10 years. There was also possible scope as timber for Spain and other countries. The manufacture of wood waste to charcoal also needed study. Other possible outlets were as tar products and leaf oil.

E. globulus could also be grown profitably and without risks in other regions of Spain, in other Mediterranean countries and in other continents where there was sufficient water and a rather loose soil and there was sufficient cheap labour.
