Use of the pilodyn for estimating outer-wood density in standing trees



Use of the pilodyn for estimating outer-wood density in standing trees



Arboretum Kornickie 39: 207-214



Both pilodyn readings and wood samples were taken from a group of 50 species of deciduous and coniferous trees in Poland and their specific gravity calculated. The correlation between wood density and pilodyn penetration depth was highly significant (r=-0.86). The standard deviation of penetration was 2.7 mm.
