Variation in fibre length within the tree, including branches, has been studied in eleven tropical Indian hardwoods growing in Kerala. Branch fibres were significantly shorter than stem fibres. Cashew had the shortest fibres (900/μm) and dillenia had the longest fibres (> 1600/μm) while the remaining woods had medium-length fibres (900-1600/μm). The most common pattern of radial variation was an initial increase in fibre length which reached a maximum and then decreased toward the bark. However… CONTINUE READING
