Abstract. Variation of wood specific gravity from the base to the top of tree and from pith to bark was investigated for Gmelina arborea Roxb. plantations in western Venezuela. Increment cores were taken from thirty trees at five different sections up the stem: 0.1 m; 1.3 m, half total height, 3/4 total height and at the top. These trees were chosen from commercial plantations located at three different sites. Specific gravity was obtained using an X-ray densitometer. The results show that… CONTINUE READING
