The paper investigates the theoretical models of eucalyptus coppices management, the ones which can give the highest potential results for this species, accordingly with the related scientific documentation.

Abstract

The paper investigates the theoretical models of eucalyptus coppices management, the ones which can give the highest potential results for this species, accordingly with the related scientific documentation. These theoretical models are further compared with the ones actually implemented in southern Italy, whose financial results often appear lower than expected, as shown by the end result of the numerous plantations realised in the second half of last century. In detail, models that implement quantitative and qualitative information are focused on growth speed and wood harvesting costs, in a risky framework. Using that kind of models, profitability of eucalyptus stands is analysed and main components of the estimation are examined. In addition, relationships among variables and results are showed and effects of changes are simulated. In fact, thanks to the simulation of the main parameters it is possible to produce a “what if” analysis of the result, judging the weight of each single factor in a complex matter such as the appraisal of the wood plantation economical success.
