There is a table of the pH of various woods attached to the article
by Jean Tetreault: "Materiaux de construction, materiaux de
destruction". La Conservation Preventive. 3e colleque international
de l'ARAAFU. Association des Restaurateurs d'Art et d'Archeologie de
Formation Universitaire, Paris, 1992. pp. 163-176.

There is also an English version of the article in the IIC-CG
publication: "Conservationally Correct": Realities and Innovations
for Exhibitions. Abstracts from the IIC-CG Annual Workshop in
Calgary, 24-25 May 1995. The International Institute for
Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works - Canadian Group,
