Natural-grown and young (5.5 year old) plantation-grown trees were sampled for two Central American hardwood species: Hyeronima alchorneoides and Vochysia guatemalensis in the Atlantic lowlands of Costa Rica. Increment cores extracted at a height of 1.3 m from trees were divided into 1cm segments from pith to bark. Basic specific gravity was calculated for each segment. Using the same cores, fibre length was measured from macerations for five natural and plantation-grown trees of each species. Number of vessels/mm2 and vessel tangential diameter were measured from segment cross sections for five natural-grown trees of each species.
