Station ID: RP-PSW-012

Description: The specific gravity of the wood of 14 conifers grown in Hawaii was measured by means of increment cores. Most species were growing in environments quite different from their native habitats. The specific gravity and growth characteristics under several site conditions were compared. Described in some detail are Norfolk-Island-pine, slash pine, Jeffrey pine, jelecote pine, cluster pine, Monterey pine, and loblolly pine. More limited information is given for shortleaf pine, Luzon pine, Masson pine, long-leaf pine, eastern white pine, Yunnan pine, and Douglas-fir.

Key Words: Pinus spp.
