Abstract : The aim of this study was to propose an alternative non-deterministic and non-parametric technique for describing continuous variation in modulus of elasticity (E) within and between stems. The material studied consisted of hybrid Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus urophylla×Eucalyptus grandis) stems felled at the age of 59 months. Samples for measuring E were taken along a diameter slab at 1.30 m above ground. The results showed that the proposed reconstruction technique is consistent compared to results from other studies on Eucalyptus. E increases from pith to bark, following a polynomial distribution. Local and tree-averaged E increased with cambial age, following a sigmoidal profile that can be described with five characteristic parameters (E at pith, E at inflection point, E after inflection point, cambial age when latency period ends, and cambial age at inflection point). The tree contributes little to the total variation. The most important changes in E value were found with increasing radial position, with this effect eight-fold more important than the tree effect.
