Description

This study examined changes in specific gravity, modulus of rupture, and modulus of elasticity with age for a natural stand and two plantations. It also examined differences in wood properties between the three stands and the effects of important variables on, and their interactions with, wood properties. Wood property data were obtained from microbending specimens selected at breast height from five trees in each stand.
