Hardwood

Hardwoods are woods from deciduous and broad-leaved trees. The Term does not infer hardness in its usual sense, but is a classification. Generally, the timber from broad-leaved trees is heavier than that from needle-leaved trees, but there are many exceptions and the lightest known woods are hardwoods.
