Mass loss and modulus of elasticity (MOE) and modulus of rupture (MOR) as a function of the exposure time were evaluated. The main findings showed that lignin and carbohydrate content of the two decayed woods decreased after exposure in the field test. Mass loss increased with increasing time of exposure, while MOE and MOR decreased for both woods. Nevertheless, blue gum wood was more susceptible to decay.
