Wood is a biologic material widely used in construction, joinery, furniture, etc. Wood has a lot of disadvantages that affect the quality of production and decreases the field of utility. During drying, the structure and properties of wood are modified. The objective of this research was to investigate the effect of heat treatment on compression strength. For this purpose is used the beech wood, Fagus sylvatica, treated in high temperature 180⁰ C, 200⁰ C, 220⁰ C. This treatment causes the reduction of wood density in 2 %. The compression strength is not effected from the treatment at180⁰ C. The greatest effect in the reduction of compression strength is noted at the treatment at 220⁰ C, around 10 %. The results of both treated and untreated samples were given, for comparative purposes.

Keywords: Fagus sylvatica L, heat treatment, wood density, compression strength.
