Wood consists of elongated thin cells like straws, which carry water with dissolved mineral substances from roots to leaves, where organic substances necessary for tree growth are formed in the light. The wood of each breed has cells that are characteristic of it only.

Wood is soft and hard.


Is the wood that represents, from itself, evergreen coniferous trees. It is usually softer and cheaper than hardwood, as coniferous trees grow faster. Softwood is common in furniture production and is a raw material for making paper. From softwood, veneers are made, then plywood, well, we, in turn, cut from the plywood crafts.


This is the so-called broad-leaved tree species. It’s expensive, because Hardwood denser than soft, the products made of it are durable and durable. That’s why such wood is valued in carpentry.

In Soviet times, the wood was divided into two groups: “Coniferous” and “Leafy”.
