Please define what you mean as 'strength' - what aspect are you thinking about? – user3795 Aug 27 '13 at 7:58
I think it is fairy obvious what you are asking (what determines the strength of wood to bending/breaking - probably mainly against horizontal forces), but you should really clarify the Q. However, I think that the Q should be left open until the poster has at least had time to see the comments and rephrase the Q. – fileunderwater Aug 28 '13 at 10:39

I was letting my fingers surfed in the internet about this question and found this interesting article : Your question is too broad so I guess the link gives a general answer. hope this helps
