Physical and Mechanical Properties of Red Pine (Pinus Resinosa AIT.) From Three Provenances

S. R. Shukla, D. Pascal Kamdem


Physical and mechanical properties of 44-year-old red pine (Pinus resinosa Ait.) trees from three different provenances, Oscoda, MI (USA); Kent, NB (Canada), and Manitoba, MA (Canada) grown in Allegan State Forest, Michigan were evaluated. One-way analysis of variance of the properties showed that the differences in the mean values of physical and strength parameters were not inherent to the provenances. The results indicate there is very low genetic diversity of red pine across the wide geographic range of the species.
