The mechanical properties of broad-leaf tree species in a maritime-wind exposed habitat in central Japan were examined. The broad-leaf trees studied were Celtis sinensis var. japonica, Ilex integra, Eurya japonica, Pittosporum tobira, Euonymus japonicus and Cinnamomum japonicum. The results obtained can be summarized briefly as follows: 1. At places with weaker wind, the number of species increased and the height of the canopy increased. 2. The fracture strength σm showed no dependence on tree… CONTINUE READING
