Determination of compression wood in Pinus radiata D Don


Determination of compression wood in Pinus radiata D Don



Maderas: Ciencia y Technologia 3(1/2): 63-67



An analysis was made of the presence of compression wood in 23 logs from the basal part of curved stems of 30-yr-old Pinus radiata, sampled from the 8th region of Chile. The compression wood was identified using a colorimetric test. An acceptable correlation was found between average compression wood content per growth ring and the maximum log curvature in logs ranked as defect grade 2 (compression wood present in 50-90% of growth rings).
