Research on wood quality-pulp quality relationships has increased greatly during the past five years. Fiber dimensions, fiber strength and fiber-to-fiber bonding have been shown to be the major wood properties influencing pulp quality. When knowledge of wood quality-pulp quality relationships is coupled with mounting evidence regarding genetic and environmental influence on wood quality, the need for adequate nondestructive wood and paper quality evaluation techniques becomes apparent.
