Can wood reach a temperature of over 1000 degrees?

No, although the answer does depend on the temperature scale being used.Most materials have a temperature, the autoignition point, at which they will spontaneously ignite without the need of an external source of ignition. For wood this is around 300 deg C although the exact value will vary from one species to another. At this temperature cellulose, which is present in all wood, starts to disintegrate and releases hydrocarbons. These react with the oxygen in the air and cause ignition.
