Abstract

The present work studied the production of biomass and the anatomical, physical and energy characteristics of Sclerolobium paniculatum Vogel var. subvelutinum wood of a plantation of 18 years old, under different levels of soil fertilization. The influences of fertilization in the production of biomass and the anatomical, physical and energy characteristics showed no significant results. The results showed an average production of biomass per hectare of 92.55t. The results disclose that the cultivated carvoeiro, with 18 years old, have fibers with 14.03mm of diameter; 3.41mm of thickness and 708mm length; basic specific gravity of 0.52g/cm3; 83.84% of volatile material; 15.65% of fixed carbon; calorific power of 4,671kcal/kg.
