Barrier zones were studied in 10 wounded red maple trees using optical microscopy with reflected and transmitted light, scanning electron microscopy, and dye penetration. Vessels in the barrier zone were abnormal and fewer in number, and vessel segments were irregular in shape. Vertical transport of fluid in this region was markedly reduced, and opacity to transmitted light was increased, in comparison with normal secondary xylem. Forest Sci. 25:311-316.
