Wood and fibres are products of the cambium and it they are based on cells that have passed through various phases of development. This biological process is related to wood and fibre quality, the latter being the arbitrary evaluation of an isolated piece of wood, tree part, piece of paper or any other wood derivative for a certain use. In this respect wood formation is the process, wood and fibre quality the result.

The lecture introduces to basic relationships and that are important to wood and fibres originating from fast-grown plantation, regular managed forests but also from high-elevation sites. The ultimate goal is to understand biological and environmental factors that affect wood and fibre quality and how to control property variability through silvicultural, management and genetic methods.
