Hardwood comes from a deciduous tree which loses its leaves annually and softwood comes from a conifer, which usually remains evergreen. Hardwoods tend to be slower growing, and are therefore usually more dense. Hardwoods are more likely to be found in high-quality furniture, decks and construction that needs to last. About 80% of all timber comes from softwood. Softwoods have a wide range of applications and are found in building components, fireboard, paper etc. Examples of hardwood trees include alder, balsa, beech, hickory, mahogany, maple, oak, teak, and walnut. Examples of softwood trees are cedar, Douglas fir, juniper, pine, redwood, spruce, and yew. Hardwood is typically more expensive than softwood.
