Pinus radiata is the dominant plantation species of New Zealand. Sometimes it can develop wood quality flaw called intra-ring checking. The checks that appear in wood during kiln drying lower value of timber leading to loses for the forest industry.

It was found that checking could be influenced by tracheid geometry and cell wall thickness. If the wood had large tracheids with thin walls, it was more likely to develop checks during drying.
