The effects of wood species, thickness and cross-section factors on wood moisture content under centrally heated indoor conditions in Trabzon. Factors of thickness, cross-section and wood species were found to affect daily wood moisture content variation, but these factors did not appear to affect the average monthly wood moisture content. Strong relationship were found between average monthly wood moisture and wood equilibrium moisture contents (r 2 =0.9972), and wood moisture content, temperature and relative humidity (r 2 = 0.9926). According to climatical data for earlier years for indoor conditions in Trabzon, it was estimated that the average annual wood moisture content was 11.7%, and the average annual wood equilibrium moisture content was 11.2%
