English To provide data and methods for analyzing stem mechanics, we investigated bending, density and growth characteristics of 207 specimens of fresh wood from different heights and radial positions of the stem of one mature Norway spruce (<i>Picea abies</i> L. Karst.) tree. From the shape of each stress–strain curve, which was calculated from bending tests that accounted for shear deformation,... Show more…
