This paper describes the study of possible interactions between the viscoelastic and mechano-sorptive creep inPinus sylvestris. When two periods of constant-moisture creep were separated by a period of mechano-sorptive creep, the expected creep rate during the second viscoelastic period was decreased. A similar effect was observed during creep recovery. These results were taken to indicate an interaction between the two types of creep, although not necessarily a common mechanism.
