Notes: Rapid Determination of Southern Pine Specific Gravity with a Pilodyn Tester
A Pilodyn Wood Tester was used to estimate the specific gravity of 21-year-old, plantation-grown, loblolly pine. The Pilodyn values (depth of penetration of a spring-powered pin) were correlated with wood specific gravity. The procedure has potential for rapid determination of specific gravity of forest trees.
