Tracheid coarseness, specific surface, wall thickness, perimeter, and radial and tangential diameter from 119 radial strips of Pinus taeda L. (loblolly pine) trees grown on 14 sites in three physiographic regions of Georgia (USA) were measured by SilviScan. NIR spectra were also collected in 10 mm increments from the radial longitudinal surface of each strip and split into calibration (9 sites, 729 spectra) and prediction sets (6 sites, 225 spectra). NIR spectra (untreated and mathematically treated first and second derivative and multiplicative scatter correction) were correlated with tracheid properties to develop calibrations for the estimation of these prope...
