Burning wood is a chemical change, because it requires oxygen to complete the reaction and you are left with separate chemicals when you are finished.

Wood is a resource that is renewable essentially in perpetuity. In NZ, Pinus radiata (a.k.a. Monterey Pine), in managed plantations reaches harvestable size of 4 - 500 mm db…h in 20 years or so. (Diameter at Breast Height). This timber is suitable for paper making and for framing for building, when appropriately treated against insect and decay. [For the manufacture of higher quality paper for e.g. photocopying, one needs pulp from hardwoods. These take longer to grow.]
chemical energy is stored in wood...
In their 2009 paper "Towards a worldwide wood economics spectrum" published in Ecology Letters 12(4), J. Chave, D.A. Coomes, S. Jansen, S.L. Lewis, N.G. Swenson,… and A.E. Zanne listed 16,468 species of wood, of which oven-dry fresh samples of 240 items on the list have densities greater than 1 gm/cm3 . Skimming the short-list for names that I recognize, I see several varieties each of Eucalyptus, Acacia, Mimosa, Diospyros (ebony), and Tectona grandis (teak). /
No type of wood kills vampires. It is a popular misconception that a wooden stake (usually oak) through the heart kills vampires. This is not true. The purpose of the stake is… to merely pin the vampire down in its coffin/grave so it can't get out anymore. The vampire is still un-dead and capable of everything it can do, it is just that it is stuck in the grave. The suggestion that the vampire was destroyed was perhaps a 'kind suggestion' in considering the alternative of what is actually going on. The same is true about dismembering. In a few rare instances certain powerful sorcerer/vampires have been able to re-assemble their dismembered bodies.

Genuine didgeridoos are always made of wood, usually the smaller trunks of living, young eucalyptus trees. The species of eucalyptus did not matter - there is no truth in the …myth that certain species of eucalyptus produced better didgeridoos. They were not usually made from branches. They were not made from dead wood hollowed out by termites - this is a common myth.
