Tension wood of Eucalyptus camaldulensis L. was characterized chemically and anatomically. Contents of cellulose and extractives were more and those of lignin and hemicelluloses were less in the tension wood than those in normal wood. Tension wood was characterized by gelatinous fibers, small microfibril angles, long fiber length, and reduced vessel frequency. The cell wall type of fiber secondary walls in tension wood was classified to be the Type S1 + G.
