Seasonal characteristics of wood formation were investigated using the pinning method in Hopea odorata and Shorea henryana in a natural dry evergreen forest of eastern Thailand. The position of cells having initiated S1-layer formation at the time of pinning was estimated in the zone where cells were directly injured by the pinning and consequently destroyed. The position of cambial initials at the time of pinning was estimated in the zone where cells were indirectly affected by the pinning and continued their physiological activity resulting in the formation of aberrant cells. Traumatic resin canals were occasionally formed in Shorea. These canals were formed after pinning and could, therefore, not record the exact time of the pinning. Diameter growth of both species was greatest in the rainy season and decreased in the dry season.
