    $\begingroup$ Please define what you mean as 'strength' - what aspect are you thinking about? $\endgroup$ – user3795 Aug 27 '13 at 7:58
  • $\begingroup$ 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. $\endgroup$ – fileunderwater Aug 28 '13 at 10:39
