Basic density and tracheid length of normal and compression wood from plantation grown Pinus patula


Record Faculty of Forestry, Sokoine University of Agriculture: ( 44)
Basic density and tracheid length of normal and compression wood from plantation grown Pinus patula
Twenty sample trees of 29 year old Pinus patula from the Meru Project in Northern Tanzania were used to investigate basic density in normal and compression wood. One tree among these was used for tracheid length measurements for both wood types. A disc of 3 to 6 cm thickness was sawn from each sample tree. Eight sectors with 45 degrees angle at the pith were marked and sawn from each disc. Basic density was determined by water displacement method.
