wood: the poor man's super alloy?

Is it true that wood exceeds metals and alloys in stregnth to weight? Tensil.bending and maybe not compression?

Yes, when loaded parallel to the grain. When loaded perpendicular to the grain the strength-to-weight ratio is several times lower and comparable to metal alloys. Engineered composites are even higher. See, for example, Ashby's Materials Selection in Mechanical Design.
