Best Answer

Wood is renewable if it comes from sustainable forests, that is, if trees are planted and grow as fast as they are cut down and burnt for energy. Trees, especially in tropical rainforests are often hundreds of years old. When we destroy these the chances of them regrowing are very small. This is why we can describe wood as a non-renewable resource.
