Wood properties were examined in 50 trees of Pinus radiata D. Don growing in Kaingaroa Forest in the central North Island of New Zealand. The stand was selected as "typical" of current silvicultural regimes and as being at the lower end of the age range for expected rotations of this species. Average whole-tree wood property values were determined from discs cut at the butt and the top of each log. Assessments were also made of compression wood, and within-tree variation in tracheid length and… CONTINUE READING
