In the present investigation the physical properties of Eucalyptus hybrid clones. The study was carried out in the Laboratory of College of Forestry, OUAT, Bhubaneswar, Odisha during the period 2017-2018. In the study the tree were harvested at the stump height and wood dices of 2 cm height are cut from the basal portion of the tree from fine section representing five year growth approximately and labeled as 1st, 2nd , 3rd, 4th, 5th yr respectively. The experiment resulted mean density (33.20 %) and specific gravity (0.95) is more in Titlagrah in comparison to density (31.80 %) and specific gravity (0.89) of Bissamcuttack. The result indicates its utility as preferred raw material for pulp and paper making.
