The warmth and beauty of wood are mainly defined by its colour. This individual attribute of wood species, among others, provides emotive comfort for humans since ancient times. During this research, the colour data of 17 wood species growing in Hungary were analysed. The specific goal of the work presented here was to investigate the correlation between colour lightness and hue. Results revealed good linear correlation between lightness (L*) and hue angle (h*) for most of the species involved in the examination. Only black locust and oak samples (having high extractive content) demonstrated lack of correlation between the above mentioned parameters.
