The dynamics of xylem formation in young Norway spruce (Picea abies (L.) Karst.) trees was analysed during one growing season in Rajec-Němčice in the Czech Republic. Microcores were taken from six 34-year-old trees in April to October 2009 at weekly intervals by means of a Trephor tool in a second generation spruce monoculture stand. The cambium activity started between 16–30 April and the last cells divided between 27 August and 17 September. The average length of cambium activity was 5.2 months. The cambium achieved its maximum width (12.3 cell layers) in June, whereas the dormant cambium contained 5.3 cell layers on average. Fitting the xylem increments to the Gompertz function showed that the period of most intensive cell formation was at the beginning of July. The total time necessary for the development of most cells was 156 days when modelled with WCDcalc script and 117 days when modelled with the Gompertz function.
