Wood consists of cellulose (40-45%) and hemicellulose (15-30%), which are both carbohydrates. Wood also contains up to 30% of complex high molecular weight poly-phenolic chemicals, including lignin. Lignin is an important component that gives wood its rigidity (and consequently allows plants made from wood reach a large size) and much of its durability.
