Adaptive growth is not the same as reaction wood. I believe that the 
production of reaction wood is a response to gravity in a leaning stem, and a 
response to gravity/preferred (genetic) branch angle and also to light in a 
branch. Compression wood and tension wood are terms used to describe which 
side of a stem or branch gymnosperms and angiosperms produce reaction wood in 
relation to gravity. The purpose of reaction wood is to re-orientate a stem 
or limb. It seems we've started to confuse adaptive growth, in response to 
stress, with a very different mechanism. And the terms tension wood and 
compression wood don't help.

I'd expect David Lonsdale to jump in here to give the definitive response. :-)

 Thanks Paul. I assosiat reaction wood with tension and compresion forces, 
and clues such as butress growth are evident. In this instance the branches 
dont exit the tree where they used to, like the hands on a clock the've re 
orented themselves.

 Hi Ben. That's the impact of the creation of reaction wood in modifying 
crown architecture over time. Great illustration!

 I'll try to explain. Two trees, an Ash and a Red Oak growning side by side. 
Sepreated by about fifteen feet. Both about 45 foot tall. The canopies did 
not have any pouras border, no overlap what so ever. I felled the Ash leaving 
the Oak. There it stood, one side fully developed domed canopy. The side that 
had been adjasent to the Ash was as flat as flat could be. As a consiquens it 
was a terrific image two dimensional of tree arcitecture. This was some 15 
plus years ago, ten years ago David LJ came round and went wow wee cool and 
took a Pic. David has been in touch to ask for another pic. Ive been watching 
this tree for 15 years and as mad as it sounds, the branches have for the 
want of a better explanation migrated around the stem, presumably to redres 
the imbalance. In one of the pictures posted by Jerry you can see the house 
in the back ground, this picture was taken from the side of the tree. All the 
branch work you see on the right of the stem as you look at it, was not 
there. It was on the tree, just not there. The remarkable thing is the change 
in direction has taken place at the point of attachment.

Ben's asked me to post these photos - he'll no doubt comment on them
