Does Getting Old Change Juvenile Tendencies? Maps Show Wood Variability in Mature Longleaf Pine
Snapshot: Juvenile wood in pines is usually shown as a central core of wood, varying little by diameter or cambial age, nested within mature wood tapering to the upper portion of the stem. The present study addresses the degree to which different representations of juvenile wood are applicable to a sampling of 70-yr-old longleaf pine trees.
