Laser light scattering from Scots pine (Pinus Sylvesteris L.) wood samples soaked in two different liquids, which were tap water and benzyl benzoate, has been experimentally investigated. Differences in the characteristics of the scattering pattern as function of the soaking time as well as the moisture effect in the orientation of scattering pattern has been experimentally investigated. The wood samples soaked in the test liquids altered the laser light scattering in along and across the grain directions. No correlation between the content of the water in the wood sample and the orientation of laser light scattering pattern was observed.
