  Triplochiton scleroxylon, Tectona grandis, Gmelina arborea, Nauclea diderichii and Terminalia ivorensis wood blocks were biodegraded in situ in the laboratory by Lenzites palisoti a white rot fungus. The test blocks were cut into 10x10x20 mm and exposed into the infection region of pure culture of Lenzites palisoti for 16 weeks. The test blocks were examined for weight loss at 4 weeks interval. The percentages of weight loss obtained after 4, 8, 12 and 16 weeks of incubation of the test blocks in Lenzites palisoti indicated that decay occurred at a relatively constant rate. After 16 weeks, micro morphological analysis of the decayed wood showed that the action of the cellulolytic enzymes of Lenzites palisoti was restricted to cell wall surface.

  Selected physical and mechanical properties of 28 years old Eucalyptus grandis planted as municipal trees were evaluated to determine its utilization potentials. Five trees were selected and felled. Test samples were then taken at four different levels along the bole. The properties of the wood evaluated were moisture contents, calorific energy, impact and static bending properties. Data collected were statistically analysed using ANOVA. Statistical analysis of the results showed significant variation in the calorific energy properties, impact and static bending (MOR and MOE) along the bole of Eucalyptus grandis. Moisture content however, showed a level of axial uniformity. All the results of the test carried out showed that Eucalyptus grandis is a very strong wood species, which can be used for load bearing work in construction such as flooring and paneling. Due to the high calorific energy values recorded in this study off cuts of this wood have great potentials for fuel wood and charcoal production.
