The inner bark of a Pinus taeda L. tree felled in December contained at least 34 free amino acids, of which 20 appeared in the protein fraction. Concentration of free acids was higher at the 7.5 to 8.5 m level in the tree than at 0.5 to 1.5 m. The reverse was true for protein-bound amino acids. Two weeks after the tree was felled the concentration of free acids had decreased markedly, whereas protein-bound acids had increased.
