In the previous paper on discolouratio n of sawn birch timber from plantation forests that had been published in Baltic Forestry, 2004 10 (2), the effect of external factors (growing site, felling season, log storage) was discussed. In this paper, the role of proanthocyani dins in discolouratio n during drying is investigated. Conventional warm-air drying gave the highest concentration of proanthocyani din in the wood. Storage of wood as logs increased the proanthocyanidin concentration in both… Expand
