Abstract
  • A major objection to lumber shipped green is that it may be damaged by wood-attacking fungi, either in transit or soon after it is put into use. The chance for such damage can be greatly decreased by dipping the lumber in a toxic solution at the sawmill. Blue stain and mold fungi make wood unsightly and also can cause trouble by increasing the water absorptiveness of the wood; however, they rarely cause any serious loss of strength. The most serious type of fungus deterioration is decay. It is due to a very different type of fungus growth that can materially weaken wood before the infection is easily recognized. Bending strength and toughness or shock resistance may be reduced before there is any conspicuous effect on the appearance of the wood or any easily recognized softening. The effect of fungi on mechanical properties of wood is described in available publications
