Interrelationship of Wood Properties of Loblolly Pine

This paper will be divided into two parts, namely, (1) a report of interrelationships of four wood characteristics (both for core and outer wood) on 14 loblolly pine trees selected from lands of the Riegel Paper Corporation for use in their seed orchard, and (2) data from wood studies of the trees used in the Industry seed orchards. Wood property interrelationships both within individual trees and among large numbers of trees from a 10-state area will be emphasized.
