What is this and what causes it?
« on: April 08, 2015, 09:45:58 AM »



So I've got this bat and it's got a strip of darker wood - I assume it's a form of heartwood, but can anyone shed some light on this? As this bat is extremely light for the size.

My old GM had a couple of them, I think it's something to do with a butterfly stain somewhere on the tree from memory.

I get false growth when I least expect it. It's very embarrassing!

According to the GN Workshop

'often called a dry mark. A very dry year can produce a darker line like that.'

Which doesn't effect performance...
