Question ID: 481588
are the wavy patterns of the imbuia pomele wood [phoebe porosa, a type of the brazilian walnut], the result of the high humidity environments where this tree species grow??; that is... can I say with a reasonably debatable sense of veracity that the wavy pattern of the wood is there because of the humidity on the brazilian environment where this tree grows?????????

I do not think you can attribute the wavy grain to humidity - there are many other tree species in temperate climates that have wavy grain. Like birdseye maple, there is no definite way to tell if a growing tree has a particular grain pattern - it has to be cut to tell, although I have heard of lumbermen who could tell by the butt end of the log. Sometimes the pattern is believed to be a result of where the tree is growing - on a slope, for instance. Grain patterns also result from the way a tree is sliced for veneer.
