Projects

ABSTRACT

 Wood samples from ten ( 10) typical timber trees known to grow at the forestry research institute experimental plot in Bende L.G.A. were , experimentally subjected to termite attack in order to test their degrees of vulnerability. The wood samples were weighed before and after the experiment. Of these, two samples were most resistant to termite attack namely; Tectona grandis (Teak) and Meliesae excelsa (Iroko), six were . . moderately resistant and registered weight losses ranging from 0.40 0.92 (g) while two types of wood, Triplochiton scleroxylon (Obeche) and Callitropsis nootkatensis (yellow cedar) proved least resistant to termite attack, their weight losses being 1.98g for T'riplochiton scleroxylon and .59g for Callitropsis nootkatensis. The weight losses amounted to 25.58% and 20.54% respectively.
