Increment cores can provide improved predictive capabilities of the modulus of elasticity (MOE) of sawn boards. Multiple increment cores collected at different heights in a tree provide marginally increased accuracy over a single breast-height core, with higher labour costs. Approximately 50% of the variability of the static bending MOE of individual boards is explained by the predicted MOE obtained from a single increment core taken at breast height.
