Description: As the tree improvement and genetic programs supply better planting stock, a more suitable environment must be provided if their full potential is to be realized. This will require much more information than we now have on how nutrient deficiencies affect the growth and anatomy of forest trees. The importance of anatomical studies has been shown by Church (1949) and Harper (1913). They found that one of the first effects of defoliation is a marked reduction in latewood formation. Furthermore, the assumption that anatomical features exert an influence on the physical and mechanical properties of wood through alterations in specific gravity is generally accepted.
