Abstract

Wood, a bio-composite consists of three major polymers: cellulose, hemicelluloses and lignin. In this paper, the anatomical elements of softwoods and the growth dynamics of a 10-year of pine (Pinus strobus) are described. Dendochronology as an important principle of crossdating is discussed.

Abstract

This paper describes a new dendrochronological classification system for oaks (Quercus) and pines (Pinus sylvestris) using intraannual wood anatomical features such as growth ring positions, latewood and earlywood characteristics, pores, vessels and calluses.

Abstract

In studies on Fagus sylvatica, Picea abies and Pinus sylvestris, growth ring structure was analysed by the change in wood density, and the effects of climatic conditions and fertilizer treatments on annual growth ring structure were determined. The results show that the structure of the annual ring ...

Abstract

Some 242 fire scars in cross-sections of Pinus ponderosa taken from trees in SE Arizona were dated using dendrochronological methods. The sample material covers the period 1452 to 1979. The year of a fire scar, and when possible the position of a fire scar within the tree ring, were determined...

Abstract

Comparisons of increment cores taken in 1955-56 from four 80-year-old Pines which had been completely freed in 1950-51, and from 11 controls from closed parts of the same stand, showed significant increases in ring width and particularly in the proportion of early wood in the former, even though...
