Wood was sampled from logs and standing trees affected by a serious tree decline in northern Hungary. Although the strength properties of the heartwood were reduced in value by only 2%, the bending strength of the sapwood was only 34% of that of sound trees. Fungal mycelium was present in sapwood vessels. Seasoning, gluing and working properties were not affected. Results suggest that the heartwood of dead standing trees can be used for industrial purposes.
