Wood quality is defined as the suitability of wood for a particular end-use. Wood anatomy and tree growth are discussed in terms of macroscopic and microscopic features of a tree examined in cross section. End-use requirements are described in terms of lumber grading. The following wood quality attributes are introduced, defined and discussed in terms of their practical implications for wood processing and wood products: wood density, density variation, juvenile wood/mature wood distribution… 
In situ wood quality assessment in interior spruce
Wood quality is of great importance for end-users but the concurrent conventional selection approaches targeted for growth rate are often associated with its decrease. The inclusion of wood quality
Corewood (Juvenile Wood) and Its Impact on Wood Utilisation
Purpose of ReviewCorewood (‘juvenile wood’) is found within the first 10–20 annual rings adjacent to the pith. This review focuses on describing the characteristics of corewood, the factors affecting
White spruce wood quality for lumber products: priority traits and their enhancement through tree improvement
White spruce breeding has traditionally focused on genetic improvement for high productivity, targeting mostly stem volume. However, new challenges, such as the effects of climate change on
Anatomical and chemical properties of wood and their practical implications in pulp and paper production: a review
Wood is a highly variable and complex material that has different chemical, physical and anatomical properties that influence its commercial value. This review therefore, explains the wide
Impact of juvenile wood on the drying characteristics of Pacific Coast Hemlock structural timber
Large volumes o f relatively small-diameter logs are generated from sustainable sources such as the Pacific Coast Hemlock second-growth forests. The percentage of juvenile wood in this kind of
Physical and mechanical properties of young-growth Douglas-fir and western hemlock from western Washington.
Diversity in land management objectives has led to changes in the character of raw material available to the forest products industries in the US Pacific Northwest. Increasing numbers of logs from
Coniferous wood quality in the future: concerns and strategies
SummaryAs the raw material base for forest products manufacturing shifts from old-growth to short-rotation plantation stock, the wood from these younger trees will contain larger proportions of
Effect of growth rate on the physical and mechanical properties of Douglas-fir in western Europe
TLDR
To quantify the impact of forest management practices and tree growth rate on the potential uses of Douglas-fir wood, nine physico-mechanical properties were studied on more than 1250 standardized clear specimens and showed significant but weak effects of ring width on the studied properties.
Physical Characterisation and Quantification of Total Above Ground Biomass Derived from First Thinnings for Wood Fuel Consumption in Ireland
Comprehensive knowledge of wood fuel properties assists in the optimisation of operations concerned with the harvesting, seasoning, processing and conversion of wood to energy. This study
Clues to wood quality and production from analyzing ring width and density variabilities of fertilized Pinus taeda trees
TLDR
Ring width and density revealed the impacts of fertilization treatment on wood quality and production and provides useful information for forest managers on the fertilization monitoring process.
