Abstract
Studies were made on 18 butt lengths of Corsican pine approx. 98 yr old grown in Hesse. Data are presented on av. values and within-tree and between-tree variation in fibre length, ring widths, latewood % and wood density, and on strength properties in sapwood and heartwood. The relatively high density is attributable to a high resin content. Strength properties are slightly poorer than in P. sylvestris, but are technically completely acceptable. Timely pruning can produce wood of high value.
