Wood is a structural material found in the roots and stems of trees. It is a porous and fibrous substance that is made up of cellulose fibers. The cellulose fibers are strong in tension and embedded in a matrix of lignin that resists compression. When it is pressed, the resulting material will break, but it will not break down. This material is very versatile and can be used for a variety of purposes.
