A transfer matrix method has been used to investigate the power law dependence of the effective elastic moduli of a two-dimensional diffusion-limited aggregate on the size l of the aggregate. Scaling exponents have been found to depend on the type of applied deformation. For stretching along the direction of growth the elastic modulus scales as l -2.2+or-0.2, while for deformations in the direction perpendicular to the direction of growth it is proportional to l-2.8+or-0.2.
