Structural factors in a Pinus densiflora tree grown under the influence of strong wind were measured. No $$\overline {DP} $$ difference for cellulose molecules was noticed between compression and opposite wood, but the $$\overline {DP} $$ was somewhat lower in the region where the compression wood was concentrated. The degree of crystallinity of cellulose was 45–50% in compression wood, about 50% in normal wood, and 50–60% in opposite wood. The crystallinity decreased with increasing height… CONTINUE READING
