Intra-ring wood density variations in Khasi pine (Pinus kesiya Royle ex Gordon)


BR Gogoi, M Sharma, CL Sharma

The present study was conducted on straight trees of P. kesiya at breast height selected from natural stands of Jaintia Hills (Meghalaya), NE India. The main objective was to study wood density variation across different types of annual rings (narrow, medium and large). Three patterns of wood density variation from earlywood to latewood were observed in normal rings. But, there was localized increase in wood density in each false latewood zone and compression wood zone.
