Pulping and bleaching of partially cinnamyl alcohol dehydrogenase (CAD)-deficient wood were studied. Results showed that young partially CAD-deficient pine trees are ∼20% more easily delignified. Bleached pulps from a 6-year old partially CAD-deficient pine tree displayed better strength properties.
