When I saw this post’s title, I thought my answer would be “free”, ie free wood, but a more serious answer is a wood like walnut that is beautiful, fairly easy to work, not super expensive, readily available, domestic, sustainable and not hard on tooling.

Moisture control is very important in something like furniture construction, much less so in carving. ie it depends on what you are planning to do when it comes to secondary issues like moisture, stability . . .
