Abstract

The volumetrie proportions of vessel elements, fibres, rays, and axial parenchyma plus vasicentric tracheids were determined for the stern, branch and root wood of threc black oak (Quercus velutina Lam.) trees. There were statistical differences in the proportions of wood elements between locations within the trees sampled, i.e., branches, sterns, roots, oblique roots, and lateral roots. Branches had the highest proportion of vesseI elements, whereas sterns had the greatest proportion ofaxial parenchyma plus vasicentric tracheids. The highest proportions of rays were found in root wood. Fibre proportion was greatest in the stern and branch wood.
