The distribution of calcium, magnesium and potassium in the cambial region of a 20-year-old Norway spruce (Picea abies) tree was determined by optical emission spectrometry (ICP-OES) in tissue samples ranging from the outer bark up to latewood and earlywood of the outer tree-rings. The highest contents of magnesium and potassium were found in the cambium and, in the case of calcium, in the developing phloem.
