Title: Old resinous turpentine stumps as an indicator of the range of longleaf pine in Southeastern Virginia

Description: Wood anatomy cannot be used to differentiate between the southern yellow pine species. Wood samples collected from old resinous turpentine stumps in coastal Virginia were subjected to chemical and spectroscopic analyses in an effort to determine if they could be identified as longleaf pine. The age and resinous nature of the samples were manifested in high specific gravities, the presence of oxidized monoterpenes, and the ability to be grouped separately from wood from recently harvested trees by NIR spectroscopy. Since there are no standards for old resinous pine stumps, studies are continuing to determine changes that occur in longleaf pine stumps aged under field conditions.
