The paper presents results of the assessment of the suitability of Eucalyptus globulus Labill for the use as structural and non-structural glued laminated timber. This comprises investigations and discussions on all stages of processing (silviculture, harvesting, sawing and drying) and the use as structural material (characterisation and gluing). It was concluded that the best conjugation would be the application of the saw-dry-rip method with a vacuum drying. Within mechanical and gluing tests to obtain the mechanical parameters and gluing suitability, the samples presented negative results with respect to the delamination requirements, but were successful with the shear test requirements.
