This study investigated the change in color of acetylated wood by the combined treatment of light and heat. The color of acetylated wood was stable against light, however, heat treatment after light-irradiation made it change greater. Furthermore, the acetylated wood discolored greater than unacetylated one by light-irradiation after heat treatment. These results show that the acetylated wood is not stable when it is exposed under special condition.
