This thesis investigates the reaction of wood of selected coniferous wood species (pine, fir, spruce, larch) to fire. The fact that coniferous wood might be taken from various parts of the tree, i.e., branches, trunk, or root, is also taken into consideration. We study changes in selected properties in relation to fire—weight loss, relative burning rate, charred layer, and (a)/(b) ratio. Results are then statistically evaluated.
