ABSTRACT



The investigations aimed at the determination of the share of juvenile, maturing (transition) and mature wood in stems of Norway spruce from stands of age class IV. The analyses included spruces of the southern and northern limits, as well as those coming from the so-called spruce-free zone. The shares of individual types of wood in stems varied, depending on the social class of tree position in the stand and on the provenance of analyzed spruces. This trend was manifested more markedly in relation to juvenile wood than in the other types of wood.

Key words: Norway spruce, cyclical heterogeneity, juvenile wood, maturing wood, mature wood, pure density.
