Relative Durability of Black Locust and Shipmast Locust when Subjected to Four Wood Decay Fungi
Abstract:The wood of shipmast locust long has been considered more durable in actual service than that of the common black locust. The results of certain laboratory tests have been interpreted to indicate a similar relationship. The laboratory data now have been snbjected to an analysis of variance. This analysis shows that of the four fungi studied the difference in durability between common black locust wood and shipmast locust wood is significant only in the case of Poria incrassata and in the case of Fomes rimosus.
