    This paper is a contribution to the technological knowledge of Quercus insignis wood, in terms of its anatomy, quality indexes of pa­ per pulp, basic density, shrinkage, welling, Janka hardness, static bending stress, perpendicular compression, shear and toughness of Quercus insignis wood.  The results indicate that the wood of Quercus insignis can be classified as heavy, very shrinkable, hard, and highly elastic, with good impact absorption.  Based on the anatomic, physical and mechanical characteristics. it is suggested that the wood  be  used for floors, packing boxes, pallets, tool handles and railroad ties. Its fibers are considered short and semirigid for paper pulp.

    Keyworks: anatomy, physical and mechanical properties, quality indexes of pulp and paper.
