Dr Xie Yaojian is one of the most well-known experts of Eucalypt in China and he works in the fields of Silviculture and Forest Tree Genetics and Breeding. Dr Xie makes a great contribution to China Eucalypt Industry by leading many major projects which bring lots of achievements. He is currently leading a public welfare project of forestry, titled’ Key Technical Research on Ecological Management and Upgrading Industries of Eucalypt’ since 2011. He is also the leader of International Cooperation Group in China Eucalypt Research Centre (CERC).

Dr Xie was appointed as research professor and deputy director in China Eucalypt Research Centre (CERC) in 1998.He was also appointed as the chairman of Eucalypt Technical Committee of Chinese Society of Forestry in 2005.



Dr Xie became a lecturer (& later associate professor) after he graduated from Central South University of Forestry (former Central South University of Forestry and Technology) from 1985 to 1997. From 1995 to 1996 he was a visiting fellow at in Sweden at theSwedish University of Agricultural and Dr Xie graduated from Central South University of Forestry and Technology with a PhD degree in 2008.
