Abstract

Results of the study on the durability of test blocks representing 25 timber species, exposed to sea-water up to 18 months are summarized. Some of the terrestrially durable species gave good results while others were unexpectedly short-lifed. Matching test blocks were treated with 3% CCA wood preservative to compare their performance and the results showed that the life of the treated blocks was, as expected, from double to several times longer. Only two species of molluscan borers were found responsible for the attack, evidence of the crustacean borers was not detected throughout the trial period.
