Here is an example of beech wood: | |||

Degree of dryness - "Air dry Residual moisture approx. 12 - 20 % |
Degree of dryness - "freshly cut Residual moisture approx. 50 - 60 % |
||

beech wood | 680 kg/m³ | 910 kg/m³ |

In this example, you can clearly see the difference in weight between dry and freshly cut wood. Please note that wood is a naturally grown raw material and weights here are approximate values.

In the table "Wood weight" below, you will find many types of wood in the overview and the weight.

In the following table you will find the weight for the most known types of wood, with a water content of approx. 12 to 20% residual moisture. This is referred to as air-dried wood. The mentioned residual moisture is reached after approx. 2 years of storage in the open air. In order to calculate the weight of the wood, you need to know the exact amount of wood. For this purpose, the conversion below helps.

In order to correctly calculate the weight of a quantity of wood, you need to convert to solid cubic meters. For this purpose, there is a rough conversion key, which facilitates the conversion. If you have determined the solid cubic meter quantity of wood, you can use the upper wood weight table to calculate the weight relatively accurately.

**cubic meter (also called ster)**

One cubic meter is a cube of sized wood, with an edge length of 1m x 1m x 1m.

**Bulk cubic meter**

In the trade of wood is often used the unit of measurement bulk cubic meter. This is one cubic meter of logs, loosely piled up. Here is much more air between the logs, which makes the conversion below clear.

**Solid cubic meter**

One solid cubic meter means one block of solid wood with an edge length of 1m x 1m x1m.

**Conversion:**

1 cubic meter = 0.7 solid cubic meter = 1.4 bulk cubic meter

1 solid cubic meter = 1.4 cubic meters = 2.3 bulk cubic meters

1 bulk cubic meter = 0.7 cubic meter = 0.4 solid cubic meter
