In the Innovood project, samples of Norway spruce (Picea abies) and Scots pine (Pinus silvestris) were samples in Sweden and Finland. Samples were taken at different heights from trees of differenet growth rates in stands of different ages and site conditions. Wood and fibre properties were analysed in the Innventia Wood and Fibre Measurement Centre, chemical composition by Södra Research (Sweden), wood and knot properties at VTT (Finland) and pulp properties at Innventia.
A database was compiled by Innventia with related properties of stands, trees, wood, knots and fibres, reflecting the large variability in the forest. It is available for the project partners, offering a spectrum of possibiliyies in modelling of property variations and relationships between properties, for sawn products mostly by VTT.
