As the outer layer of trees and shrubs, bark is exposed to the direct action of atmospheric conditions and reacts to changes in relative air humidity. This study focuses on the actual hygroscopicity of the bark, regarded as a component of the total bark retention capability. The main research aims were to: (1) determine the physical properties (specific density, bulk density, total porosity), actual hygroscopicity and maximum water storage capacity of the stem bark at breast height (1.3 m) ofdoi:10.3832/ifor1979-009 fatcat:cb4cl35d5ncbheomzuw3vbhwie
