In spite of being 82 I learned a new word yesterday - now I hope I don't forget it. :cool:

Cambium is that thin layer just under the bark that carries nutrients from the tree roots to the leaves, etc.

And all this time I thought it was - and have been calling it - GRAIN - but I stand corrected. I think the grain is made from the growth ring and those portions of . . . .

. . . never mind.

I obviously need more sleep.

Anyone care to add or subtract from this boring subject - help yourself.

Looks like you got your definitions right Norson. I think it's good to know the parts of a tree and how they tie together. Understanding the parts of a tree helps you understand how to work with wood.
