Wood is a stiff building material made from trees. The Merriam Webster dictionary defines wood as "the hard fibrous substance consisting basically of xylem that makes up the greater part of the stems, branches, and roots of trees or shrubs beneath the bark and is found to a limited extent in herbaceous plants." Wood is used primarily in carpentry, though it may also be used in creating homes, crosses, or for making a fire. Depending on the kind of tree the wood came from, the wood will have different properties.
