Variation of cellular proportions in sweetgum and their relation to other wood properties



Variation of cellular proportions in sweetgum and their relation to other wood properties



Wood and Fiber 11(2): 136-143



Sweetgum trees from natural stands in Louisiana were sampled along both vertical and radial gradients. From these samples, within-tree variation of cellular proportion was established. Overall means indicate that vessels comprise 56.6% of the wood, fibres comprise 25.2%, and parenchyma comprises 18.1%. Regression analyses using fibre or vessel proportion provided curves that offer capacities for the prediction of wood density with high precision.
