In boreal conifers, maximum latewood density (MXD) of annual rings varies in response to warm-season temperatures. Vegetation productivity can be estimated using the Normalized-Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) calculated from satellite sensor data. Ground measurements related to productivity are required in order to evaluate these estimates. MXD of Picea glauca at 2 Alaskan sites (Wrangell-St.
