Purpose of this study was to compare the resistance of five wood species to termite attack as determined by the lumber position on the tree. The study was conducted at Forestry experimental field and laboratory, University of Bengkulu from September 2002 to April 2003. The wood species used were bawang, laban, pelangas, johar, and pulai. Evaluations were made by subjecting 0.8 x 2 x 20 cm3 of lumbers originated from base, middle, below the first branching, and top parts of the tree to ground buried test for three and six months. The resistance to termite attack was determined by the percentage of weight lost and score of the lumber damage. It was found that laban was the most resistant wood, as indicated by the smallest weight lost in both test periods, followed by pelangas, bawang, johar, and pulai , respectively . However, based on the damage score, a similar resistance was found on laban, pelangas, bawang, and johar, while pulai was the least resistant. The resistance tended to decrease as the position of lumber goes to the top, although middle and below the first branching were similar. An exception was observed on pulai where all positions were susceptible to termite attack. The termite species was identified as Macrotermes gilvus Hagen.
