This article looks at the results of a joint research project between Cypress Development Group and Scion on macrocarpa, a highly regarded timber in New Zealand. Some of the conditions that can affect the growth or death of macrocarpa are age, temperature, humidity and soil composition. Particular focus is given to a hypothesis on the macrocarpa around Monterey Peninsula in California. Stress was identified as a key factor in macrocarpa's ability to survive canker. It notes the durability of macrocarpa timber.
