2.6.2.4 Cross Break. A cross break is the failure of the wood cells across the
grain and severely reduces wood strength. Such breaks may be due to internal stress resulting from
unequal longitudinal shrinkage, such as that which occurs in compression wood or from external for-
ces. Cross breaks are often masked by preservative treatment. Thus, inspection of poles "in the
white" prior to treatment is important.
