Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication
Description: The 22 species selected for analysis comprise over 95 percent of the hardwood volume occurring on pine sites. Ten trees 6 inch. in diameter at breast height (DBH) of each species were taken from throughout that portion of the species' range occurring in the South. Pie-shaped wedges, removed at 48-inch intervals along the stem and each branch, were combined within each of the two wood categories for weighted samples. Stem fiber lengths varied from 0.83 mm in red maple to 1.76 mm in black tupelo; branch fiber lengths were significantly shorter, varying from 0.66 mm in red maple to 1.40 mm in black tupelo.
