Two questions before your question can be answered:

1) What cubic measurement?
Cubic yards? Cubic feet? Cubic meters? CC?

2) What material?
Water? Iron? Mercury?

You can get close but getting an exact weight will be virtually impossible. The actual weight will depend on the density of the wood species plus the moisture content.

A site with different species of woods with weights in kg/m^3 is: http://www.simetric.co.uk/si_wood.htm

Multiply 8.119 by the weight shown in kg/m^3 for the wood your interested in. Multiply the answer by 0.001 to obtain tonnes.

Realize the answer will be a close approximation.
