Properties of wood:

According to a simple classification the wood is divided into soft and hard. Hornbeam, ebony, Canadian maple, beech, oak and ash belong to the hardest ones. The opposite are spruce, pine or birch, which are the softest ones. Hardness is determined by the density of wood. Density is the ratio between mass and volume. Wood material is composed of pores and walls that surround it. The density of pores and walls is also affected by the environment, in which the tree grows.
