Topic : Wood Density Variation around the Circumference in Pinus Merkusii Jhungh & de Vriese

Authors:K.Lego || C.L.Sharma, M.Sharma

Abstract:Wood density is one of the most important wood characteristics. It is an important indicator of wood quality and selection of wood for different end uses. The present study was carried out on cross-sectional discs of Pinus merkusii at breast height collected from pine forest of Dong village, Anjaw district of Arunachal Pradesh. The main aim of the present study was to evolve an efficient sampling procedure for wood density comparison amongst trees. Analysis of variance carried out among eight cardinal directions revealed significant variation in wood density around the circumference. A non-significant variation was observed when the wood density of two opposite directions as compared with a mean of eight cardinal directions with multiple comparisons by using linear contrast. Hence, any two opposite directions can be suggested for comparison of wood density among Markus Pine trees.
