Relationships between tree age, radial growth rate and sapwood amount were studied in 125 Norway spruce [Picea abies (L.) Karst.] trees belonging to dominant and suppressed crown classes. The sapwood radial width and transverse area depend logistically on tree age, while the rate of sapwood increase and the asymptote value are determined by radial growth rate of the tree. The higher the growth rate, the larger the sapwood zone. The sapwood widening will be completed on an average by the age of… CONTINUE READING
