Abstract:Wood specific gravity and tracheid length were examined in 10 provenances of shortleaf pine, Pinus echinata Mill., growing in two 10-year-old plantations in Oklahoma. One plantation represented a north-south transect of the species range, and one an east-west transect. Variation in specific gravity, tracheid length, and total weight of wood produced was greater among sources on the north-south transect than on the east-west direction. In both plantations the Ashley County, Arkansas, seed source was superior to local origins in specific gravity, tracheid length, and weight of wood produced. Forest Sci. 16:66-70.
