Radial increment at the stem-root base, and the occurrence and intensity of compression wood in exposed root bases of four young Scots pine, guyed to prevent stem sway for 2 years, were less than in four free-standing trees. A relationship between secondary thickening, mechanical stress, and formation of compression wood is suggested. Forest Sci. 22:193-194.
