    Flakeboard, particleboard, and fiberboard panels were manufactured from four different sources of southern pine (Pinus taeda L.) juvenile wood. The sources were: 1) fastgrown trees; 2) the inner core of older trees; 3) branches; and 4) tops. The juvenile wood particle sizes and panel densities were similar to those used for control panels made from mature mature southern pine wood. Overall, the initial (72°F, 66% relative humidity conditions) modulus of elasticity, modulus of rupture, and internal bond of the juvenile wood composites were comparable to the mature wood composite values.
