Weeping-willow and Moso-bamboo wood exhibited higher weight, lignin and cellulose losses than China-fir wood (Fig.
Although cellulose loss on China-fir wood was significantly lower than other woods, there were no significant differences in total cellulase activities on China-fir, Weeping-willow, and Moso-bamboo woods by the paired t-test on the data from Table 1 at 99 percent confidence level.
The levels of laccase activity were usually lower in the China-fir wood than in the Weeping-willow and Moso-bamboo wood.
Three native wood species, Weeping-willow (Salix babylonica), China-fir (Cunninghamia lanceolata) and Moso-bamboo (Phyllostachys pubescens), were degraded by the white-rot fungus Trametes versicolor B 1.
The native wood species, China-fir (Cunninghamia lanceolata), Moso-bamboo (Phyllostachys pubescens), and Weeping-willow (Salix babylonica) are widely used in the Chinese wood industry.
China-fir lumber was evaluated in three separate tests over a 3-year period.
China-fir (Cunninghamia lanceolata (Lambert) Hooker) grows at higher elevations in many areas of Southeast Asia, particularly in southern China, Laos, and Vietnam.
While China-fir has a reputation for durability, there are concerns among potential users that this second-growth material may lack the durability of lumber from old-growth trees since there is evidence of this effect in other wood species (Taylor et al.
The decay resistance of China-fir (Cunninghamia lanceolata) was evaluated in several tests using white- and brown-rot fungi in an American Wood Preservers' Association soil-block test.
Mean weight losses for China-fir blocks exposed to G.
As shown in Figure 2, the linear fitting curve for China-fir is less steep than the other curves, which are nearly parallel to one another.
