Sapwood includes the water conducting part of the stem which transports water and minerals from roots to leaves. Studies using sap flow gauges have to determine the area of the sapwood in order to scale measured sap flow densities to the tree or stand level. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between sapwood area at breast height and other tree parameters which are easy to measure of the montane Mediterranean conifer Cedrus libani, including a total number of 92 study trees of different size and age. The study was conducted at four different stands situated between 1000 and 2000 m altitude in the Elmali Cedar Research Forest of Antalya, SW...
