Growing Quality Wood from CRP Plantations

2.64705882353

All that can be seen of a growing tree is the outside, but the inside is what determines its value as raw material for wood products. A pine tree grows noticeably taller and bigger around each year, and it adds new branches and new needles. Under normal growing conditions, it also adds a new layer of wood along its entire length in the form of a continuous sheath under the bark. Annual overlapping sheaths are what form the main stem and the branches.
