It is actually a mixture between the great southern oak species and the atlantic polar bear species.The atlantic polar bear used to climb this particular tree and therefor…e the name of the tree
Yes its very strong wood, cheap and easy to work (less tool wear). Open grain gives better grip for adhesives and it will readily absorb preservatives, stains and paints. A fa…vourite material for pit-props (mine working roof supports). It creaks loudly a good time before failure; an early warning of impending collapse for the miners.
a good solid soft wood, although it's called parana pine and may seem to be a pine... IT'S NOT A TRUE PINE ;)
No. Pine is not a hardwood. It should not be burned in a fireplace or wood stove because the flammable resins in the wood will build up in the chimney and could ignite causing… a chimney fire.

There are various types of maple and pine each with its own characteristics but the main difference in characteristics is that maple is hard and fine grained whereas pin…e is relatively soft and coarse grained.

Trees that lose their leaves in winter are hardwoods, those that don't are softwoods. The density of the lumber has no bearing on the classification. Therefore pine are consid…ered to be softwood.
Yes, pine is a type of wood. It is mainly called pine wood.
Maple is a hard wood (from a leafed tree) and pine is a soft wood (from a conifer). In this case both wood also have the described character (hard vs soft) not always the case….
As a softwood, it is easier to machine/cut/sand than hardwoods and can look quite nice with just an application of clear finish (although it will darken in colour over tim…e). Furniture made with pine has a rustic look if it contains knots and is often used for bedroom furniture. However, it is more susceptible to damage such as denting or gouging than hardwoods are and usually requires pre-treatment to when staining in order to produce acceptable results.
A pine tree.
Pine is soft wood. Maple is hard.
Well wood is pretty hard so I assume that it is a hardwood. You never see someone squishing and bending wood.
