    The 22 species selected for analysis comprise over 95 percent of the hardwood volume occurring on pine sites. Ten trees 6 inches in diameter at breast height (DBH) of each species were taken from throughout that portion of the spcies' range occurring in the South. Pie-shaped wedges, removed at 48-inch intervals along the stem and each branch, were combined within each of the two wood categories for weighted samples. Stem fiber lengths varies from 0.83 mm in red maple to 1.76 mm in black tupelo; branch fiber lengths were significantly shorter, varying from 0.66 mm in red maple to 1.40 mm in black tupelo.
