Put these advances together and you’ve got one Ferrari of a tree. And angiosperms were versatile and fast. They evolved into the oak, beech, elm, chestnut, and other trees that produce the wood woodworkers love to cut up. Angiosperms and gymnosperms coexisted peacefully side by side for millions of years. And why not? There was plenty of water and sunlight. There were few predators. And it was warm. Even though— from time to time—it did get a bit chilly. So there you sit, an honest, hardworking planet.

Around as a Folger’s coffee can, and is harder than oak. It’s a grass that doesn’t really act, look, or feel like a grass. The grass they used was bamboo—over a hundred thousand poles of it. This was no isolated incident; 90 percent of the scaffold used in Hong Kong is bamboo.

Classifying bamboo as a grass (which it is) instead of a wood is akin to classifying a tomato as a fruit (which it is) instead of a vegetable.

The earth would be, well, all earth tones. But if you were to walk to the edge of the water and slip on your close-up lens, you would see something heart-warming: the first single-cell life-forms. Not very big, not doing much, but hey: a start. The exact origin of these miraculous cells we leave for Darwin, Jimmy Swaggart, and the Discovery Channel to debate, but the undeniable fact is that they’re there. Click the shutter and voilà: you’ve got a photo of where the story of wood begins. You’d need to wait around another five hundred million years or so before you’d start seeing blue-green algae form.
