The axial variation of bark thickness and quantitative anatomical features of Eucalyptus globulus bark were analysed for one site based on individual measurements of ten 15-year-old trees at six height levels (DBH, 5%, 15%, 35%, 55% and 75% of total tree height). The parameters studied were: length, tangential diameter and percentage of sieve tubes; length, width, cell wall thickness and percentage of fibres; height and percentage of rays; percentage of sclereids in the secondary phloem. Bark thickness decreases from base to top of the tree. Fibre width and wall thickness decrease from base upwards. No distinct axial patterns of variation were observed for the other biometric variables studied. Parenchyma is the main cell type of the bark (50%) followed by fibres (27.9%), rays (12.1%), sieve tubes (2.7%), and sclereids (7.3%). The cell type proportions vary significantly within the tree, i.e., parenchyma, ray and sclereid proportions decrease, fibre and sieve tube proportions increase towards the top of the tree.
