Abstract [en]

Brutia pine (Pinus brutia Ten.) reforestations have been successfully used for decades in restoration of degraded forest ecosystems in Greece. The future purpose of these reforestations might expand to include wood utilisation. This study provides information on tracheid length of juvenile brutia pine aged 14–22 years grown on good and medium sites in Northeastern Greece. In addition, relationships among ring width, latewood proportion, wood density, and tracheid length were evaluated by using Causal Correlation Analysis. Similar mean tracheid length values were found for good and medium sites. Radial variability of tracheid length was similar on the good and medium sites, showing the typical increase in the juvenile phase. On both site types, latewood proportion showed a strong and positive relationship with wood density. Unexpectedly and only on the good sites, a significant positive relationship was found between ring width and wood density. On the medium sites, tracheid length was negatively related to fast growth and positively to high wood density. Tracheid length on the good sites was correlated only with latewood proportion with a weak positive relationship. The overall results may provide opportunities to better understand the quality of small-dimension timber of brutia pine and to better utilise it.
