In the heart of the limba tree (Terminalia superba Engl. & Diels): detection methods for heart rot and false heartwood

abstract
Both resistance and velocity measurements were performed on planted and natural limba trees in the Democratic Republic of Congo. While 2 velocity measurements per tree are sufficient for the quick diagnosis of rotten or hollow trees, a compilation of 16 resistance profiles is necessary to distinguish the so-called false heartwood (limba noir). On those two-dimensional reconstructions, small peaks in resistance correspond roughly with the boundaries of limba noir. Detection methods are influenced by diameter, wood density and the presence of buttresses. Further research on density profiles is recommended to analyse these influences and the link with both detection methods.
