Abstract:

Preliminary evaluation was carried out to select the fuelwood tree species based on biometric attributes viz., shoot length, basal diameter and volume index under field conditions. This study involved fifteen tree species viz., Acacia auriculiformis, Acrocarpus fraxinifolius, Cassia siamea, TNAU Casuarina MTP 2, Casuarina junghuhniana, Chukrasia tabularis, Dalbergia sissoo, Eucalyptus camaldulensis, Gliricidia sepium, Khaya senegalensis, Leucaena leucocephala, Melia dubia, Populus deltoides, Prosopis juliflora and Thornless Prosopis which was carried out at Forest College and Research Institute, Mettupalayam. Dalbergia sissoo, Eucalyptus camaldulensis, Casuarina junghuhniana and Cassia siamea proved superior in shoot length consistently over a period of 6MAP. Considering all the growth periods, three species viz., Cassia siamea, Casuarina junghuhniana and Eucalyptus camaldulensis have registered best growth potential in basal diameter. Volume index was significantly high in Eucalyptus camaldulensis, Casuarina junghuhniana, Cassia siamea and Dalbergia sissoo.
