Other species

New Zealand has approximately 15,000 hectares of “other hardwoods”, equating to only 0.8% of the planted production forest.

Scion has led research into a wide range of species which are currently not grown on a commercial scale. We have maintained large trials involving various conifers and hardwoods over many years.

Scion publications are available on the following species:

  • Ash eucalypts
  • Black walnut
  • Blackwood
  • Contorta pine
  • Cypresses
  • Cryptomeria, Thuja and Tsuga
  • Douglas-fir
  • Eucalyptus nitens
  • European black pine (Pinus nigra)

  • Maritime and knobcone pines
  • Mountain pine (Pinus mugo and P. uncinata)
  • Paulownia
  • Ponderosa and Jeffrey pines
  • Poplars
  • Silver firs
