C.F.I. Occasional papers no.5
Abstract:

Wood density was analysed on sections cut from a random sample of 78 trees of Pinus patula Schiede and Deppe aged between 4 and 18 years selected throughout the site range planted for pulpwood production on the Viphya plateau, Malawi. The sampled trees were stratified by age and altitude. Mean tree density was determined by analysis of separate growth rings along two radii on discs cut six levels up the stem of each tree. The correlation between mean tree density and topographic p...
