WOOD
 
TYPES + PRODUCTS
In order to better understand the properties of wood and its uses, we researched different types of wood as well as woodproducts & by products. Wood is made up of 50% carbon, 44 % oxygen, and 6% hydrogen.There are two different categories of wood, softwoods and hardwoods. Under these categories there are many species andeven more sub species of wood. Dependent on the species, or subspecies, wood is used in construction, as fuel, ascommerical products, or as food.
