You're also seeing 'Ray' cells that will cross over the cambium from the phloem towards the heartwood. In a cross section they grow in a starburst pattern. Some trees have more than others. Oak and gum for instance, have lots which makes them more resistant to splitting than others like say Maple.
Yikes!! Tree science! Will there be a test on this at the end of the week?

Tree geeks are handy to have around at times. :)
