Decrease in strength as a result of fungus attack was greatest in impact bending strength followed in order by static bending strength, compression strength and Janka hardness. Hardness was equally affected by both fungi, other properties were more affected by C. cerebella. Strength properties of Oak and of Pine heartwood were least affected by fungus attack; Pine sapwood, Spruce and Beech were less resistant.
