The purpose of this study was to make an estimate of the average ring fibril angle within the stem of 48-year old plantation-grown red pine (Pinus resinosa, Ait.). It was also conducted to determine the degreed relationship between this estimated average ring fibril angle and various factors such as position in the tree, latewood percent, specific gravity, and growth rate.
