It has long been known that the Slavs had a written language and highest culture long before the Baptism of Russia. In Scandinavia, wrote on the stones. Natural stone which is more practical for its durability and reliability. But with the Slavic written language was a tragedy — largely due to the fact that it was written on the tree.
But otherwise the wood is very good stuff! For all spaces of Russia is full of forests. Where a wide variety of trees. Each tree its own advantages and disadvantages. If you know how to build a house with his own hands — you also need to know which tree to choose. Consider a few of the most common trees.
