Title: Survey of specific gravity of eight Maine conifers

Author: Wahlgren, Harold E.; Baker, Gregory; Maeglin, Robert R.; Hart, Arthur C.;

Date: 1968

Source: Res. Pap. FPL-95. Madison, WI: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Forest Products Laboratory, 1968: 11 pages

Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)

Description: This analysis of a mass increment core sampling of eight coniferous species of Maine characterizes specific gravity for each of the species. No clear-cut relationships of specific gravity to forest type, stand density class, height class, or tree diameter at breast height were found. Included in the data are the species average specific gravity and the range. These data can be used in the assembly of working equations for weight scaling, pulp yield estimation, and strength evaluation.

Keywords: Maine, conifers, specific gravity, wood density
