Comparison of morphological and chemical properties between juvenile wood and compression wood of loblolly pine



Comparison of morphological and chemical properties between juvenile wood and compression wood of loblolly pine



Holzforschung 59(6): 669-674



In conifers, juvenile wood (JW) is always associated with compression wood (CW). Due to their similar properties, there is a common belief that JW is the same as CW. To resolve whether JW is identical to CW, 24 rooted cuttings of one loblolly pine (Pinus taeda) clone were planted in growth chambers under normal, artificial bending, and windy environments. Results showed that the morphology of JW was significantly different from CW.
