The basic mechanical properties of beech wood in coppice forest, locality Bor-Boljevac, Management unit "Crni Vrh-Kupinovo" were studied: Bending strength, modulus of elasticity in bending and shock resistance. Eight trees were taken from two series covered by the scientific-production experiment in this management unit. The statistically processed results were presented for each tree. There is a very strong correlation of the general linear form y=ax+b between the study properties, except between density and shock resistance. Static bending strength decreases mildly with tree height. The analysis shows that the average values of the study properties of beech wood at this locality are approximately the same as the values at other localities in the former SFRY. The only deviation is shock resistance.
