In a soft wood like Douglas Fur the closer the growth rings are the denser/stronger it may be, in Hardwoods thicker growth summer wood rings usually means stronger. Old beams cut from old growth Douglas fur have been known to be stronger then from Doug fur cut from younger trees. Basically it seems in older growth Douglas Fur the growth rings become denser. The Douglas fur 2”by4”s cut today are not cut from old growth Douglas fur trees so if you have old enough Douglas fur cut from an old growth tree you just may have some okay wood to play with.
