Abstract
Wetwood (wetheart) represents the most serious specific defect of the silver fir wood. The purpose of this study is to (1) quantify the relationship between the tree characteristics and the absolute and relative extent of the wetwood; (2) elucidate the supposed relationship between the occurence of the wetwood and tree health/condition inclusive of mehanical injuries; (3) confirm or disprove the connection between the wetwood occurence and crown morphology ("stork''''s nest"); (4) assess the "pathological" rotation age (5) evaluate the financial loss due to the presence of the wetwood; and (5) characterize (unfavorable) drying behavour of wetwood and to propose measures to minimize kiln-drying degrade (checking, warping).
