The long roots of pines, which are important in developing the framework of the root system, have been further subdivided into "pioneer" and " m o t h e r " roots by Noëlle (1910) and Aldrich-Blake (1930). Wilcox (1964) added a third category of "subordinate mother roots" for red pine.

In quarter-sawn boards ray patterns vary from an inconspicuous figure in maple, with small rays, to the lustrous grain of oak, with conspicuously large rays. BARK The bark is a much more complex tissue system than the wood. In a mature tree the bark includes all tissues outside the cambium, including the inner living phloem and dead outer tissue (rhytidome). More specifically, in tissues that have gone into secon­ dary thickening, bark tissues include primary and secondary phloem, cortex, and periderm.

Structure hairs by mycorrhizae and some root hairs in uninfected fine roots; (2) limited rootcap tissue in mycorrhizae (rarely more than two cell layers between the apex and fungal sheath) and extensive rootcap tissue in uninfected roots; and (3) occurrence of dif­ ferentiation much closer to the apex in mycorrhizal than in uninfected roots. The morphology of mycorrhizal rootlets is similar to that which might occur from slow growth as a result of unfavorable environmental conditions. Among qualitative dif­ ferences abscribed to fungal infection are thickening of the inner cortex and radial elongation of epidermal cells.
