Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

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.
