Variation of specific gravity and fiber length in loblolly pine branches



Variation of specific gravity and fiber length in loblolly pine branches



Journal of the Institute of Wood Science 8(4): 171-175



Relative density, growth rate, extractive content, and tracheid length were measured from pith to bark and from insertion to tip of loblolly pine branches. Variations within branches were noted and compared with variations in the stem. The lower radius of branches contained a high proportion of compression wood. Hence, the wood samples from the lower radius had a higher density and wider growth rings than samples from the upper radius at all points along the branch.
