    Description

    Loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L [L.]) has become the most important source of wood fiber in the Southern United States. This tree is an excellent competitor and recovers well from a variety of adverse conditions. The author presents a histological study of tannin in pine roots to measure tannin abundance as a primary trait to evaluate root health at the microscopic level. This paper describes the types of tannins in roots and quantifies their occurrence in plantation-grown loblolly pines.
